As some of you know, Andy and I have been church soloists for about 30 years. This means we can’t travel on major holidays, because we have to work. For the last decade, one particular set of friends has included us in their holiday plans. Today, we spent the whole day with them, jointly preparing a rather unusual Christmas dinner (two vegan soups, a salad, and…reuben sandwiches).
For eight hours we cooked, talked, ate, talked, worked a very difficult jigsaw puzzle, and talked. Their kids, whom we’ve known since they were born, have developed into intelligent, interesting people. Conversation ranged from nutrition to music to educational theories to gaming to the care and feeding of pythons.
Thank you, friends, for being a blessing.
