When I worked at DVC, I had a particularly good relationship with one of the vets, Kelly. She's about 10 years older than I am and pretty laid back for the most part. I enjoyed being on her team because I knew it was going to be a good week for me, and we fell into a pretty good routine and understanding of one another (she once said to me: "Hey Lisa, will you get me that thing that does that thing with the stuff?" and I knew what she was talking about!!)

Unfortunately, as it often happens, when I left the clinic I sort of lost touch with Kelly. She's got kids and was married and is busy, and I got busy too and our friendship just sort of slipped away.

Maybe that's the wrong way to phrase it...it didn't slip away because I still considered her a good friend..but it sort of got put on the back burner.

Lots has happened in the last year with Kelly though. She and her husband are divorcing and she has gotten herself into a relationship with a woman.

When I learned this little bit of information, I moved her back to the front burner and reached out to say we should get together.

Today we met for lunch and caught up. It was truly nice to visit with her again and to see that she seems to be genuinely happy for a change. When she was married to Jim, she seemed a bit downtrodden and not as happy as she should have been. I found out today that he was abusive, not only to her, but to her kids, and that makes me sad...but she does seem to be really happy now, and I think that's all that matters.

We chatted for about 2 hours before she had to go meet her girlfriend (also named Kelly!!), but before we left, we made a plan to not let almost two years pass before we saw each other again, and I hope that we stick to it.

It's a balm for my soul to reconnect with good people.

Love until later,

Reggi
