Visiting

Standard

The time has gone fast today. We visited some old friends (about 96 years old and about 91 years old). When we were younger and my youngest children were only a month or two old, my husband traveled all the time. This couple became like a third set of grandparents. My parents lived 500 miles away, and there is nothing like family when you are far away. That was in a different state and 22 years ago. Now our “grandparents” live in our state, only over an hour away. We visited them today. Returning some of the love they gave us when we needed it so much.

About bjdonaldson

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

  1. This reminds me that I really need to go visit my old neighbors. They helped me love and care for my kids when they were young, and now they are in a retirement home. I love them, and your post has inspired me.

    • I’m glad. It seems silly, but the death of Gracie (“Good-bye Faithful Old Friend” Slice) reminded me of the brevity of life. I don’t want to have regrets because I was “too busy” to visit. Have fun visiting your friends.
