Pleasant / Presence
This past weekend I went to Boston to hug old friends and laugh; to celebrate, see again, and send off.
We shared dinners and cups of coffee, watched movies, toured houses. We went to church; we went to Martha's Vineyard (see pics). There were too many gummy bears. There was not enough time.
I heart these girls a ton - for our shared history together, for being co-travelers on some rocky paths, for the ways they are each different from me, and for things we have in common. I heart them because I feel free to be me when I'm with them. They remind me of who I am, in the deep-down nitty-gritty, and their wisdom and encouragement reminds me of who I want to be.
(Also, they are freakin' hilarious.)
Dear bANaNAs, 'Dre, Kujo, MadDawg, Trafmeister, and Zamboni:
I love you more than my luggage. Thanks for being you. And thanks for giving me glimpses of the God who binds us all together.
