A Happy Reunion
I had the chance to visit with a friend from back home, Sarah Downing. We were in the Reading Stake together and then at BYU together for a year. We married the same year and went our separate ways. Every few years, we've had the opportunity to visit, usually when she gets the chance to come to Education Week at the Y. I saw her last five years ago when she came out with a friend. This time, she had undergone an amazing transformation and had lost over 100 pounds! She looks amazing! We enjoyed a treat at Cold Stone (where she had the willpower to get the fat and sugar free sweet cream with fruit), some time at my house to chat, and then out for Thai food for some more chatting and catching up. As this trip was a needed break for her, it was a refresher for me as well.
