It was dress-up night on the cruise ship, and I was regretting the size of my carry-on luggage and wishing I had brought something a little more spectacular to wear, when Mid-Life Rookie offered me her gold shawl to throw over my black dress.
And she did more than that. As we gathered on our last afternoon, MLR and DogBlogger spoke to the group and said they had something for me. Perusing the photos from the formal night, they found this picture of me and wanted me to have it.
I am rarely speechless, as those who spent time with me on the cruise will attest (especially those who fell asleep to the sound of my voice). But in this case, a picture really was worth a thousand words.
(More to come.)
