for friendship and pizza

The other day, we got an AMAZING package delivered to our door.
Inside: a heart-shaped Chicago-style Lou Malnati’s pizza!
And a tin of Garrett’s cheese and caramel popcorn!

This gift came from my friend, Mona.
Seriously, she knows the way to my heart.
Chicago pizza is my favorite food, and one of the biggest things (besides people) that I get homesick for.

And this popcorn is absolutely delicious.
During its travel here, it had actually exploded all over the box. Since it was touching the dry ice inside, I didn’t think the popcorn was okay to eat.
So we called Lou Malnati’s, and they sent us a second package of popcorn and pizza.
We lucked out in getting two pizzas. :)

This picture is from our college graduation in Chicago.
Mona and I were roommates, and we had all of our education classes together.
We both got married in the weeks after graduation, and I moved away.
Unfortunately, there were some misunderstandings that we never made peace with.
We hadn’t spoken until this January.
And in the end, God is good.
He gave us the grace to forgive each other.
And I am so glad to count her as a friend again.

Thank you so much, Mona!
