"At the Christmas Store in Tanger this morning picking up some yard stuff..while browsing my shopping cart went missing. A woman had mistakenly taken it since we had both had the same prominent item in it. When we spoke, her face looked so familiar to me, I asked if we had ever met. She mentioned the town she lived in and I immediately knew who she was although we had never met in person before. She did not recognize me at first without glasses (and makeup) until I gave her the connection.
She has been an online friend and we've been communicating for years, even prior to Facebook, but now is one of my favorite people whose posts I read and reply to almost every day! We know so much about each others life's ups and downs and if it wasn't for the shopping cart mishap most would have past each other unknowingly!!! I love these kind of unexpected surprises."
We are still in touch on FB. She's been busy with birthdays and a wedding shower. I'll share this with her, it may bring a smile.
