So…I found Hollee Card! And, just today, we shared in a lunch at Pho Dau Bo in Calgary and took up where we left off in 1971. It was such a beautiful time. I will treasure this day forever. Lunch was relaxed and conversational…such a rich collection of remembrances and present-day experiences! I remember that ours was a friendship of JOY. Hollee’s life work has been with L’Arche. She has treasured family and has supported them through a number of challenges. Today, over lunch, I felt emotional because after so many years, we are still at the heart of things, unchanged. At lunch, Hollee shared some homemade ginger snaps and so we enjoyed a cookie with our tea before departing on a bit of a dog-walk and a visit with Hollee’s auntie and uncle.
How wonderful that you were able to reconnect and share your lives together again. What a wonderful gift.
