Friends come into our lives from so many different walks of life. The friends that came to visit in October I have known since October of 2000 and thus, our trip with them took place over the 11th anniversary of our friendship. That’s incredible in this day and age! On their visit, they brought their little 2 year old son, Lucas, with them. He was so sweet and very special. He picked up this rose from the ground at the park and handed it to me. “Here, Sawah. Fur you!” Or something adorable like that :) My heart melted and I wanted to be able to take the rose home and remember that moment forever. Instead, we passed a bench, and took this picture. I will always be waiting for them to come back and offer up new hugs, as I know they are always waiting for us to come and visit in a place that is still part home. Maybe this year, you never know.
