Meeting Another Fly Sister


I’ve mentioned my “art group” on these pages many times. It’s a group of ladies who all took an art business class together on-line nearly 2 years ago. We were encouraged to join a class Facebook Page to support each other and discuss the class. But a weird thing happened in the process. A number of us bonded beyond anything any of us expected, and became a tight group who support each other, not only in our art, but in life in general.

We’ve been through so much together – deaths, illness, job losses, marital difficulties, divorce, unruly teenagers, and of course all the happy stuff, too – births, awards, licensing deals, weight loss – you name it, we’ve shared it. And the amazing thing is, few of us have actually met in real life.

Well, when I went down to Southern California to see my sister, I was able to meet one of my fly sisters – turns out she lives just a few miles from my sister, and we were able to meet for coffee before I headed home.

What an amazing visit!

We met up at Starbucks, and I figured I had about an hour and half I could hang out. We just chatted and chatted. I don’t think there was a silent moment as we scooted from subject to subject. At the one hour point I checked the time, noting I had half an hour left before I needed to leave. An hour and a half later we came up for air again! I couldn’t believe how the time flew.

We asked one of the workers to take our picture, and a gal at the table next to us said, “you guys must not have seen each other for a long time!” They were amazed to learn we had NEVER met before!

Susan was everything I’d hoped she’d be and more! I so wish we lived close enough to see each other regularly.

If you ever get to Glitterfest in Anaheim, you’ll see her “charming” jewelry for sale. It’s fun and trendy…

    • I sure hope so, Susan! Problem is, even though we both live in Cali, it’s one long state! I’m going to have to work on more excuses to get down there.
