Providence: Girl Time to the Rescue!

Providence has stepped in to intervene between me and my pain. There is another female officer in my "pod" (the city block-plus of trailers I'm in, of which there are over 30 on base), who I occasionally see in the latrine trailer. Her name is Teresa, and she's about the same age as me, intelligent, sensitive, observant and single. ...= hopefully we have enough in common to enjoy each other's company while gaining that rare "girl time" I need so badly.

So I spent the last post on my rant... then a few hours chasing down policy and procedure issues for my job... then to the post exchange (PX), the little store on base for supplies hygiene music over-priced dvds and footwear. Teresa was there. I haven't seen her in about a week and a half, and she was there! She's coming over tonight for an hour or so... just chatting over coffee. I AM SO EXCITED! If our plan actually takes place, I'm sure I'll post more about it, but isn't this great? I needed this merciful break.

Words on a screen are great in most cases but they do fall short sometimes. I can send lots of hugs your way but reading words on a monitor falls so short of the real thing. Anyway, hugs, hugs, and more hugs. Better yet-- I keep you close in my prayers to the ONE who really can and does hold you. I pray for Pat too.

Love and prayers, Yvonne

Okay, so did you get together for coffee?

As it turns out, my friend took leave back to the US. It was her turn to go back, but she had short notice. I never did manage to connect with her about "standing me up" that evening. Oh well, anticipation of a guest drove me to spring cleaning, and my room looks great now!
