. . . and put it in your pocket.
Never let it fade away."
Last Saturday we had a "play date"
with our very good friends.
We met up in Mystic, CT and planned our day.
We had lunch at Mystic Pizza (yup, same as the movie).
We took a scenic drive through Essex and Haddam
and stopped by Gillette's Castle.
Back to Mystic and had a nice dinner at Kitchen Little.
It was a wonderful day with wonderful friends
and it went by way too fast!
We didn't want it to end.
We said our goodbyes around 9:00 pm
and headed back home.
Along a stretch of road on Rt 2 it's very, very dark.
Tom and I had been going over our day and how much we enjoyed it.
And then .... it happened!
(not my photo)
He said: "Was that a......"
I said: "....shooting star!!!!!"
He said: "Do you think it was fireworks?"
I said: "No, definitely a shooting star!"
I was giddy!
My heart was racing!
I couldn't keep my eyes off of the sky in case it happened again!
This was only the second shooting star I've seen in my 60 years!
It's been said that if you see a shooting star with someone else that you
should both make a wish and that it would come true.
I quickly said "Make a wish."
I closed my eyes and made my wish.
My wish was that some new medication would come about that would take
all of my husband's health problems away.
A wasted wish? Not in my heart.
I looked over at Tom and was so happy that
we saw this shooting star together.
It was a magical ending to a wonderful day!
