I was flipping through channels the other day and came across Bones. I have always enjoyed that show. It was the Christmas episode from the first season – the one where they are all quarantined in the lab because they were exposed to Valley Fever. Part way through the show, all the characters, except for Brennan, get visitors. Booth’s son, Angela’s dad, Zack’s whole family.
It’s a moving scene, but it got me to wondering who would come see me. I know my family would come. I’m the youngest of 6 kids with lots of extended family. I think most of them would make the effort. I also know which friends would be there.
As I thought about it, I realized there are some people who I would like to see if I were in that situation but who wouldn’t know about it. People with whom I have lost touch. Thankfully, that list wasn’t long – my first love, the first kid I babysat, my favorite high school teacher. People who affected my life in different ways and help make me who I am today.
What about you? Anyone special you would like to see?
