From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

June 26

Oh, those dreaded words! But here was my trusted, very best friend telling me she was fixing me up on a blind date. We were juniors in high school and had been best friends since first grade. She must have been crazy thinking she was going to fix me up with her boyfriend’s friend. And going to Disneyland where I would be stuck with some strange geek for hours and hours.

Sue and I had a huge fight. Back and forth we argued. I decided to talk to my mother who I knew would be on my side and back me up.

My mother said, “You’re just going to Disneyland— you’re not going to marry the guy!” Famous last words! Four years later, I did marry that very guy! And now, some 30 years later, my blind date, our three sons and I still tease my mother about her famous last words. And I am still the very best of friends with Sue. Who knew it would turn out the way it did? Thanks, Sue.
