Decided that I had to stop dragging my feet and start planning my Great Ottawa Spring/Summer Getaway :p
Wasn’t emotionally prepared for that walk down memory lane – unearthed lots of documents and relics from 2 years back. Plenty of happy memories, but also too easy to get stuck in nostalgia. Laughed really hard over some things; was wistful and pensive at others. I went to Ottawa with so much help and blessing from people here as well as over there. So much time seems to have passed.
One of my big motivators for this trip is meeting with old friends. And I mean, really old friends. My oldest friend is a wonderful lady from church – Daisy. She is 91 this year – and still bakes muffins for Sunday Bible Study class, and hosts weekday tea parties! She has also been faithfully emailing me at least twice a month since I left Ottawa 2 years back.

Imagine my surprise when I checked the church’s Spring/Summer schedule, only to discover that a picture I’d taken with the Bible Study group had found its way there! haha. Here.
