OK it is complete, but I haven’t actually spoken to George.
But I have spoken to precious Martha. Martha is my own dear cousin, George’s sister. My heart is all lit up and I am grinning from ear to ear. Sigggghhhhhhhhh….
It’s almost a similar feeling to falling in love….reconnecting with those that even as a child, I never got to live life with on a regular basis due to geography (we moved to NH, they lived in NY), but they still meant so much to me…and then our family just went separate ways, yet I have always thought about them and for the past 10 years I have found myself really pining for them, remembering them in my prayers, etc….but not quite knowing how to reach out.
And here is the magic of 43T, darlings. I couldn’t actually search for Martha directly, because I didn’t know her married name…..but somebody called her because they googled George’s name, and guess what was #2 on the google list? THIS GOAL. So they told her they thought someone was looking for her brother…and of course I was looking for her too….and Joel too. So 43T and Martha’s bravery to place a phone call after over a decade really accomplished this goal!
