what makes me happy !

“I’m so happy to have my friend back!” My husband, Mark, and I were living in Chicago when his job required us to relocate to North Carolina. We sold our house quickly, and I never got a chance to say goodbye to our mail carrier, Vicki. Over the years we’d become friendly, and I missed seeing her. A few years later, Mark was traveling home and struck up a conversation with the person sitting next to him on the plane. It turned out that person was Vicki!

E-mail a clear photo and description of it, along with your name, address,…
