St. Petersburg, FL
I ran into Stacey Michelle and B.J. Knehaus this past Tuesday morning at Wings Bookstore in St. Petersburg. I was feeling particularly low as I had just ended a dear friendship and thought the soothing and spiritual atmosphere at the bookstore would calm me. I was wearing a butterfly shirt which B.J. noticed and commented on right away. As we talked about butterflies and other symbols that have meaning for us, I felt an instant connection and gratitude for B.J. and Stacey. As I was reading, they came back with a basket of crosses for me to choose from. At that moment, that connection, thoughtfulness and gesture of friendship was just what I needed. It is no coincidence that I chose the Cross with Friends written up top. I will never forget that magical Tuesday morning.
