Cat's Happy Ending

I realized I should let you know what happened to Cat. The last time I talked to her was about five years or so ago. I looked her up, found an email address and wrote. I was so happy to hear from her. She wrote me back almost immediately. Some time after the whole strip club incident Cat got a job, but I can't remember what it was. I have wracked my brain and can't remember. A few months later we got into a tiff over a boy and she ended up leaving Atlanta. A couple years later she was back in town for a visit, hunted me down and came to see me at work. I saw her one other time after that when she was in town again. We lost touch. So I was thrilled when she wrote me back. I didn't know what to expect. You'll all be thrilled to know that Cat ended up just fine. More than fine.

I don't want to give out too many details, but Cat lives in the Pacific Northwest. She is married and a mommy. She went to school and became a midwife. In addition to that she's a yoga teacher. She lives a peaceful, balanced and creative life and she brings babies into the world. There is no happier ending.

I haven't spoken to her since. She was hugely pregnant when last we wrote and I know after the baby arrived she got extra-busy. Her email address no longer works. I can't find a new one and she isn't on Facebook, so let's just take a moment and send Cat some collective good energy, wherever she is, for doing so well for herself. She deserves it.

I'm glad that she is well - she probably loved hearing how well you are doing also.

Yay for Cat, and double yay for becoming a midwife!

She couldn't have had a cooler story end.

You took her by the scruff of the neck and literally yanked her into self respect and a better life. So heart warming. You're a good soul.

Reminds me of that book, "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" ... you would definitely be one of the people she would meet.

THAT was the BEST way to wrap things up, getting us to send out big love. I kind of appreciate that more than the story. Wonderful.
