I caught up on a few more emails (a seemingly never-ending, but friendship-rewarding task).
I heard from a former student who is visiting Europe and desperately trying to work out the train schedules to make it to Catanzaro.
Peppe with one of his oldest friends, Mario. Mario speaks very little English, but never fails to consider if I might need to “get out of the house” when Peppe is working. Many times he calls or stops by in an attempt to help me adjust to Calabrian life. I appreciate it, but know he doesn’t do it for me…but for Peppe.
I find this endearing, not only because 1) 50 years is a remarkable milestone, but, also 2) the dude remembered!
Bravo Papà Giuseppe!
Here’s hoping that YOU spend 50 YEARS with your Best Friend! And, if you already have – here’s to 50 more!
Sadly, this marks the final week for Love Thursday posts. The LT gang brought us together and encouraged us to look for love in the miracles of everyday life. They have done a phenomenal job of highlighting the positive aspects in our world. I know I am not alone in wishing them the best in their future endeavors, and in sending a heartfelt GRAZIE to them for their creation.
Happy Love Thursday!
