It Just Took One Question
I was talking with a new colleague recently. We were making small talk and she asked me where I live. (one question) I told her and she said that her sister used to live on that same street, but has been living in Connecticut for several years. So I asked for her name. When she told me, you could have knocked me over with a feather, as the saying goes. Her sister and I had been the best of friends and neighbors. My daughter had even done some babysitting for her children. This had taken place at least 15-20 years ago. Her sister went on to tell me that she was in town to attend her nephew's wedding. It truly is a small world. If my new colleague had not asked that one question we probably would have never made the connection. I hope to reunite with my dear friend in the next few days before she leaves for home. Have you ever had an experience where one question or comment lead to a special outcome?
