Be Well, My Friend

We met on the sidewalk
In Panama City
(Panama, not Florida!)
Army wife, Marine wife
Both mommas too nervous to
Let our kiddos go to the bus stop
Alone

Together
Exploring that new city, that country
Finding so much in common
New friends, lifelong friends
(Then and now)
Wherever we are
Our hearts still meet

I’m praying for my dear friend and a good outcome tomorrow as she undergoes surgery to receive a new pacemaker. I can’t be with her, but my heart is there.
