Long Friendships

Mary Tyler Moore image found here
This above image of Mary Tyler Moore, a comment from our oldest son, Brody, and the fact that my husband arrives from Sweden in less than 3 hours are what's making me happy today!

As I sped out of Minneapolis, last night, I passed this area where Mary Tyler Moore tossed her hat in this iconic photo. (And if you don't know Mary Tyler Moore, she's classic TV worth finding.) The kids and I have been in the great city of Minneapolis visiting my old university friends and room mates, Faye and Janet, and Faye's family. When I think of both of them, I literally want to toss a hat in the air. I think my kids even felt like tossing a hat in the air, after our visit. As we were waving good bye, our son Brody's comment said it all: "Mom, I can really tell what old friends you are because you were laughing all of the time from the time we got there." True.  There is nothing like their long friendships! It had been too long but, it's always like yesterday. I hope that you, too, have friendships and/or events that literally make you want to toss your hat in the air today!

And, my last "hat tosser" today: 2 hours and 27 minutes until my husband arrives!

What about you? Have you had any moments or events this week that make you feel like this photo? I would love to hear from you. 


  1. I love those moments reconnecting with old friends. I love and am grateful for all the high school and college friendships I am fortunate to have. We were together when we began becoming who we are today. Beautiful memories, priceless bonds.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment - wishing you wonderful moments


Thank you!
