31 years after we met on the playground in 1st grade
they play together; our kids, almost 1st graders themselves
and as we talk, women now; our dreams at 11 and 17 and 25 have come true;
we catch our girls talking and they could have been there for hours.
and we have said goodbye for israel, turkey, korea, china, thailand, brazil, india; miles between
and now only a car drive apart
and who would have known about so much good but our God of good;
the unexpected, undeserved, unrelenting riches of God.
Love you, H
