Face to face.

She was even sweeter in person.

For the first time today, we met face to face. From that moment she sent that email at a point when she felt broken all the way to her victorious phone call some weeks later -- we had never actually met in person. It was all over phone calls and emails and text messages.

Imagine that.

So today we met in person. We talked about medicine. We talked about summer plans. And we talked about moments in time. (We also talked about which toppings are best on frozen yogurt.)

It was a really good meeting.

  2. Hi Dr. Manning - With my week of troubled technology I think I missed something. I am not sure who this lovely woman with you is but I sure am glad you had a great time! Annon Jo

    1. Anonymous Jo -- This was the woman who reached me in Jury Duty that day. The same one who graduated from medical school on May 19 and whose journey you've been following with me. She was passing through Atlanta so we finally got to meet!

      (Sorry that was confusing -- I added a little more!)

    2. How very special indeed! That had to be so special to meet in person and to know the wonderful moment will go on in your continued friendship. Beautiful.

  3. I love this so much its beyond words

  4. Happy Ending = New Beginning. Love it!

  5. Don't you just love how you became Friends way before you ever met.
    Love this post!

  6. Moments full of wonder and beauty and grace... Thank you for sharing them.

  7. The fact that you two met AFTER the victory had been won just speaks to how special this relationship was. Before you two met face to face, you met heart to heart and that made all the difference :)
