Today, we celebrate friendship.
A couple of weeks ago, a group of graduate wives gathered together on a slightly rainy English Sunday to celebrate a dear friend’s 30th birthday and the impending birth of her second child.
In honor of her, we wore beautiful hats (indoors, no less!), and ate delicious treats prepared by serving hands. We were able to love and bless her, the same way she does to us.
As I looked around the room, I couldn’t help but smile at this amazing group of women whose paths have crossed in England. And it struck me that this is what community is supposed to look like.
I know everyone left that afternoon, feeling grateful and loved and, overwhelmingly blessed.
So to our dear friend, LL: We are so glad to celebrate you and your friendship, and the joy you’ve brought to our lives!
