I think we're finally past saying that we are celebrating Christmas with people, but it's still fun to take the opportunity to get together with people we love. And we've known and loved this crew for a long time! Growing up together through those awkward junior high years together makes for a pretty strong bond.
God keeps working things out so that we get to see each other fairly often, even though we live almost 1000 miles away, even when we are in the same country. Spending time chatting with this godly couple always encourages me, and Wednesday afternoon flew by while the grownups sat in the living room, the boys played outside, and the girls quietly played indoors. Thanks, friends, for filling up my heart!
