Oh y’all. Just like this time last year, my dear friend/pen pal/faith mentor, Lisa and her family, whom I only met thanks to this blog, surprised me with a lightning fast visit on their way back home from Florida to Indiana. My heart lept out of my chest when I was mid-meeting with our website designer and Ben walked in with a crew following behind him and said, “I’ve got a surprise…” After a difficult week, it was a fantastic gift to hug them each, to be “real friends” as she and Doug say.
We said goodbye after only a 30 minute visit since they had to get to Alabama for a high school football game, but I’ll take it. Now we have to get serious about planning our first Indiana adventure!
