Today we spent time with some lovely people. I had the good fortune of meeting them through my parents, who knew them first, and have the honor of continuing that friendship now that my parents are no longer with us.
They are the kind of people who invite you over to relax, eat good food and enjoy good conversation. They are the kind of people who offer to hold the baby so you can eat while the food is still hot. They are the kind of friends who encourage you to continue to spend your energy raising and enjoying your children while they are small. They have the benefit of experience - they raised their children while starting a business - and are honest enough to share what they would have done differently.
I appreciate their hospitality, their advice and their love. We are so fortunate to be blessed with their friendship.
