Last weekend Steve, Cora, and I made the trek up to Dallas to spend 2 days with our friend's the Harrison's who are here in the States on a furlough from Africa. They are probably some of the most amazing people I know- in every sense of the word- amazing. We got in Thursday around dinner and left Saturday after lunch. It went by way too quickly- as these kinds of trips always do. We ate good meals, sharing hearts with one another, laughed, cried a bit, loved on each others babies, rested, prayed, ate more good food- well you get the idea. Libby was one of my college roommates and I had not seen her since February of 2009. It was a sweet reunion. I love knowing that even though I do not get to see or speak with her often, we always pick right up where we left off. Most of our communication over the last 3 years have been through email or the occasional phone call on her breaks in Kenya. It was a complete indulgence to get to spend 2 whole days IN PERSON with her:)! They leave for Africa in June so I soaked up my time with her. Plus we got to meet their fabulous daughter Annabelle- what a sweetheart!
Friday was a very special day because all my college roommates (well almost, Lyd could not make it and was dearly missed!) came over and we got to spend the morning and afternoon together. What a treat! I loved meeting all their babies and talking and eating (I do a lot of that you know) and just being with these ladies. My soul needed their company- it was not nearly long enough.
