My sweet friend Jacky came to visit! She is from the Netherlands but lived in the States for many years. We met while working together at my first job out of college. A few years ago she moved back to the Netherlands and we've kept in touch on facebook. I was pleasantly surprised when she wrote me out of the blue asking if she could come visit. I said of course, when? She said how about next weekend and that was that. It was really wonderful to see her and know that even if you don't have contact often, you can still pick up certain, special friendships right where they left off. Thanks for coming Jacky, you are always welcome in Sweden and we can't wait to visit you in the Netherlands!
