A new friend

From my journal dated September 26, 2002:

Mary Sutton called to ask about walking together sometimes. I was so glad to hear from her! I think I’ll take her up on it!

Notes:

Mary was a lifesaver for me! She asked me several times if I wanted to start walking with her on a regular basis before I took her up on it. It helped me so much in so many ways – it gave me something to look forward to; it gave us an activity to do together (since we really didn’t know each other very well at the time); it gave me some exercise, which I badly needed to relieve stress. Walking together built a basis over time for a friendship, one which I will always cherish. Relationships don’t happen automatically; they take time, but can be well worth the effort.

Mary, dear friend, you are always in my heart!!
