A WTH Moment

You know, one of the coolest things about being a menopausebarbee is that there comes a time when we’ve reached a certain point in our lives when Wonderful Things Happen to us.

I experienced a WTH moment last Saturday evening at an event Dana and I attended celebrating the lives of the Tuskegee Airmen of the Pacific Northwest at the Northwest African American Museum here in Seattle.

The ticket controller was a woman I had not seen in 40 years. 40 Years!

By the time Denice and I had hugged and reminisced and she had filled me in on the fact that three siblings, Yul, Glenn and Yolanda, our childhood friends have all sadly met their demise, I hugged her even tighter, as memories flashed in my head of walking home from school in my Our Lady of Mt. Virgin blue/grey plaid pleated uniform skirt, blue sweater, white shirt and knee highs and oxford shoes; all of us kids laughing, sometimes stopping at the soda fountain and doing (at least back in that day) what kids did on their way home from school.

I sm so very thankful that the Lord has been so generous in allowing us to see each other again.


There are some presents we get in life, those WTHs that are just too big to wrap a ribbon around. Only a hug will do
