And then there was that one time Sara and I were at Lake Michigan last June 26, 2017. Another couple standing by the lake farther down from us in an oh so picturesque moment. I snapped their photo because the sunset, the lake, the lovebirds, it was all too beautiful not to.
Then Sara went over and asked if they’d like the picture. They agreed, somewhat suspiciously so then I sent them a text with the picture.
The phone number they gave never responded and frankly, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t even get a “thank you” response.
And that was the end of the story.
But then it wasn’t.
I saved the text message month over month and planned to message them again on June 26, 2018. I have a hard time remembering what the date is but on the 28th my duty called.
I took a screenshot of our original one-sided text conversation and sent them a little note.
I was pretty pleased with their response. 💛
I don’t like talking to strangers or people in general but sometimes life taps me on the shoulder and I’m always grateful when I pay attention.
And I’m even more grateful that Sara reached out to these two.
