We laughed, talked, and reminisced. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at an old mom & pops restaurant located in a 100+ year old building which was former a bank. We strolled through a small shop along the main street of that town & talked about fashion trends these days. I shared pics on my phone of our son's recent engagement at the State Park where we'd taken her & Dad on his last Christmas. We looked at pics of my g'daughter -- HER GREAT g'daughter -- and the adventures of hiking, playing & meeting Peg + Cat and Bob the Builder at a recent costume party.
Some days life seems so long -- especially when we're focusing on the tough parts of life. Other days life seems to speed by at warp speed -- like a sci-fi movie. Life has many seasons. Few of us are in the same season as those around us. Those differences can be challenging. Life is about stretching, learning & growing... but most of all life is about LOVING.
"Do not withhold good... when it’s in your power to help..." Proverbs 3:27Yesterday I embraced the opportunity to LOVE. And, it felt good.
