Venessa and I have known each other for 10 years.
- We met when I had relocated to this area and I was at the supermarket.
By that time, my child was 2 years old. She was having a tantrum in the middle of the supermarket and I tried desperately to calm her down. Venessa happened to be walking by and scooped her up to join her son on her trolly. I think my daughter was so stunned that she immediately stopped crying. We walked around with her on Venessa’s trolly and I actually managed to do my shopping. 10 years later, we are still amazing friends, and our kids too. The other week, I went to see Venessa because she was baking my favorite cake. Her house was nice and warm which was quite evident from the minute I walked in. She had been facing issues with the heating system in her house the previous winter. So, Venessa started to save for a new heating system from December last year. Finally, this past fall, she phoned the Heating and AC company to send an expert over with an estimate for a new heating system. She wanted to get the upgrade done in fall, before the crazy winter months. That was a wise decision because this winter has been challenging. I remember when we were waiting for the cake to cool down, there was a snow storm happening outside, and it was getting worse and worse. Thankfully, my kid was with her dad, and I could spend the night at Venessa’s house if the storm kept going. I loved how warm it felt thanks to the new heating system she had installed in her house last fall.
