Yesterday, immediately after I wrote the Reunion piece and sent it to everyone on the evite list, I felt a sharp pang of regret. Maybe wearing my heart on my sleeve was not as good of an idea as I thought. But then, something wonderful happened.
I started getting emails from lots of people who had read the article and could relate in one way or another. It was awesome to connect with folks about the reunion, high school, and how far we’ve come since then.
Today I am grateful for all the people who took the time to write back. Thanks for erasing the regret that had begun to bubble up inside of me.
