LYNNE'S SOMEWHAT INVENTED LIFE.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

LUNCH WITH AN AMAZING WOMAN
This is the Vivacious and Totally Fascinating Shawn. I met her--well, kind of met her--through her blog. She is the mother of a woman who is the friend of a woman who is in my ward (church ward). I don't know how I first stumbled on her blog but it had to be a link from Lisa's blog--the woman in my ward who is also a Totally Fascinating woman and ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE SHE IS READY FOR THE RUNWAY. No, I'm not bitter. Lisa is so fascinating she has two blogs. Hereand here. I showed up to pick Shawn up ONE HOUR EARLY. Honest, I did. First time I've been early in my life. So I told her I'd run a couple of errands first and then I showed up fifteen minutes late. One or the other, early or late but not on time.We had a delightful three hour visit and then our little corner of Heaps filled up to overflowing! Noisy? It was noisy. The rest of the restaurant? Empty.
It's a mystery. Why can't they share the noisiness a bit with some of the empty booths, empty tables, empty rooms. Shawn thought so too.
Thanks Shawn for the delightful lunch and for your spirit of determination and for the love I read in your blog for your children and husband. It makes me want to be a better person. Or be on time, one or the other.
