I am so lucky to have friends that I hold dear, live all across this country. Obviously, the problem with that is in missing them!
Stephen and Jennifer had moved their family to Bedford, New Hampshire, a little over an hour from my friend Dawn in Millbury, MA. They'd just had a baby in 1999 when I saw them last and now they had two more that I had only seen in Christmas cards and Facebook photos. After more than a decade, I finally saw my friends.
It's funny how much time can go by and within a moment you realize Einstein was right about time, (time being relative and all that) and that time doesn't exist between true friends.
And they make my heart smile.
"Today, my heart hold all my beloveds close
despite the distance between us.
Today, my heart is full of connections,
alive with the knowledge of the tender web
which holds us all in its embrace."
Stephen and Jennifer's home
I didn't get many pictures there because frankly, we were so busy eating and talking and catching up!
I don't know who's house this is, but somehow I think the photo looks like it was taken a hundred years ago.
