|Fried ice cream and sopapillas|
When I retired, we connected on Facebook and last August met for dinner, just to catch up with each other's lives.We have begun meeting monthly and our shared meals never run less than three hours so we have to pick restaurants where we can sit and chat well after the meal has finished. We find we enjoy sharing family tales and swapping teaching stories and I love hearing about some of my students that she has been helping.
Time spent with Sarah helps me remember my own career journeys and reminds me that I still have some wisdom that others find valuable. She helps me retain a connection to today's world and makes my world a bit broader and interesting. I'm proud to have such a lovely friend. I'm continually impressed by this remarkable young woman.
