A week ago, my best friend came for a visit. It was my parents' birthday present to me. I've never been more excited about a present I received 13 days late! We had such a good time enjoying this Panamanian adventure together. She could only stay for a few days, but it just made everything seem right. Complete. And, as with everything, it made me think.

I've been friends with Amelia since 2007. I have the unique pleasure of remembering the first time we met. We were visiting the big church in the small town in Georgia that was our new home. Amelia was the first person who came up to speak to us because she wanted to. not because she wore the greeter name tag, but because she was truly welcoming us. A few days later, she called to invite us to church supper. In her Alabama drawl, the "Come on" seemed deeply welcoming, so we came on! We've been together ever since. The richness of that friendship I wish for all of you.
