Passing Through

On Wenesday I got to see a good friend. Marieelena and I met at church in Phoenix. She lived just minutes from my house and we became walking buddies. Walking and talking, walking and talking. We bonded quickly! Length wise, we have only been friends a short time, but I feel like I've known her all my life. Her mom went to Heaven last week and Marieelena flew to Viriginia to attend the service. Wonderfully, she had a layover in Philadelphia, so I drove the 40 minutes to the airport and got to spend a good couple hours talking with her face to face before her connecting flight. I also got to meet her new baby girl, Stella Rose, who she was pregnant with when I moved. It made my whole week to get to give her a big hug. It wasn't nearly enough time, but I'll take what I can get. I miss a lot of a lot of places.

I love you, friend!

I'm glad it worked out that you could meet up with her despite the crummy weather that day. I'm sure it was a blessing for her as well.

God is making you quite a lovely "friendship quilt". Prais God from whom all blessings flow.

I love meeting up with old friends. Right now I wish I could meet up with steelhead, chinook, silver, trout, and sturgeon, just to name a few.
