No reason

Yesterday, I got a text out of the blue from two of my best friends, Christina and Rachel. They were inviting me to brunch. There was no special occasion. I had a daunting to-do list. Plus, I had actually just finished eating my breakfast (consisting of a handful of gingersnap cookies, thankyouverymuch). In other words, there was no “reason” to go. And that was what made it so meaningful to say, “Yes!” The only reason was that I wanted to — and that can be the most fantastic reason of all.

No reason can be the best reason
