Gone But Never Forgets a Thing!!

Okay blog readers. Who remembers Jacyln? She does not miss a beat. She never forgets a thing. But to back up this story...here is a little foreshadowing for you. I don't know if I really believe in foreshadowing but it was a literary term I had to use in high school. A long time ago, okay 3 years ago, there was a yard sale. Jaclyn and Karen were having yard sales. They lived across the street from one another. I went to sale stuff at Karen's house. We had walkie talkies to talk to each other. There were a group of runners running by the yard sale. They stopped and one runner bought Jaclyn's dining room table. I kidded with Jaclyn that day and asked why she was not running with them...she laughed and said, they are crazy.



Well here is your foreshadowing...that was my running friends, Kerri and Paige. Paige bought the dining room table. Never did I dream that I would run with those girls. Never did I dream I would live in Karen's house and Jaclyn would move. That isn't just foreshadowing, that is God's divine plan in my life. Anyway...I never even get to talk to Jaclyn and I get a box (in the first picture) in the mail. Filled with everything I need to survive my half marathon. I mean who is that thoughtful? I tried to run with her once. I never tried it again. She is a machine. I still to this day could not run beside her. But she ... she shows up when you least expect it. She is gone but never forgotten. I LOVE AND MISS YOU MY DEAR FRIEND.

Oh what memories! I remember all of us sitting there at our yard sale saying, "those girls are CRAZY!". Funny how now you live there & are a part of that. Oh how we all miss Jaclyn. We must get her back here soon, even if it is only for a visit. Just when you think she has forgotten about you, she goes and does something like this. So thoughtful!!

Crying....You know I love you both dearly and think of you often. I am just terrible at making phone calls...
