Six women, one movie, 160 miles … and the Art of Compromise.
Six of us were all in agreement. Everyone wanted to be included. And the only solution was to meet in the middle… of Western Washington. So that’s what we did.
Two came down from the Seattle area (160 mile roundtrip) and four of us drove up from Vancouver (WA) (156 mile roundtrip) meeting up in Chehalis, Washington. And what was the driving force?
Meeting first at Starbucks, we sat in the warm Spring Break sun to chat. Then headed over to the theater where we commandeered the back row for the best viewing. (Only four others in the theater with us. Did I mention spring break and sun?)
As we watched there were a few tears. They could have been sentimental or as Dawn said… allergies! However the laughter far out-weighed all other emotions in this warm, light-hearted comedy. (Windex, never leave home without it.)
We may not be Greek, but we know about family… because we ARE family.
From here we were off to lunch for more chatting and laughter before having to part ways once again. But we each took with us warm memories of good times with family.
Compromise is a good thing.
Until next time… Cheers!
