MS: White Sangrias, Girlfriend’s and Great Conversation

How could something so outside of my comfort zone, bring me so much comfort?

First, I drove 4 hours to Germantown, Maryland…BY MYSELF, to visit my BFF. It was just what the doctor ordered. She sent out a social media message and ten…yep TEN girlfriends (Soror’s) met us at Rosa Mexicano, a really nice Mexican Restaurant in the The National Harbor, Fort Washington, MD. I wouldn’t let her send the message early because too many times I’ve wanted to gather and then at the last minute, couldn’t make it. All the moon’s had to be aligned.

We drank White Sangrias, ate dinner and talked for hours. How could something so outside of my comfort zone, be so comforting?

I’ve known these women for at EAST 30 years and some even longer! We were all “girls” together, and I am so proud that we’ve grown into such an amazing group of woman. They each caught me up on what’s been going on in their lives, jobs, kids, school, races they’ve run, races they plan to run, trips taken, trips planned, and changes they want to make in the world.

What I enjoyed most was, not talking about me, being sick! I filled them in on, what I plan to do in the future. It was a refreshing reminder of what good health looks like, and it looks like us! Okay, I did talk about MS a little. It was nice to get intelligent questions from friends who really want to understand, without the pity. All they seemed to see was the “me” they used to know. Sometimes, that’s enough.
