A couple weeks ago I was driving home from work. It was June 12. My friend Nikole’s birthday. She passed in 2012. Anyway, on my way home I was thinking about Nikole. I told her Happy Birthday and then I sang to her. When I finished singing, I sat for a moment in silence and then I asked her if I was going to get to see her kids this summer. I don’t remember much of the ride after that.
A little while after I got home I checked my Facebook and found an invitation from Nikole’s mom. The invitation was for a birthday party for all three of Nikole’s kids. I was so excited to get this invitation and can’t wait to visit her children in July.
