A couple of months ago, I contacted a friend about meeting up for lunch. I apologized for it having been so long since when we last connected. He responded by saying, “No issue.

Today I'm linking up with the #fiveminutefriday community again. No editing, no worrying that everything's not perfect, just writing.
