She may have only been 5 days old but we go waaay back. Vancouver has got to be the most small town city in the world. The 6 degrees of separation rule doesn’t really apply, it’s more like 2 degrees most of the time. How often do you meet someone and become their Facebook friend just to see that you already have 1 or 2 friends in common?
So long story short, I used to play with this little girl’s mama when we were about knee high. Our parents went to school together back in the 60’s. We hadn’t seen each other since the early 80’s. Fast forward 25 years she and her husband were camping out in the bush in Mission and along came a guy who thought they looked friendly enough and asked if he and his friends could join them camping. That ‘guy’ was a friend of mine and eventually about 5 years later became my husband.
I had a great time hanging out with her and catching up & hope to do some camping with their family later this summer. It’s all come full circle.
