my attempt at blending the arts I cherish

depth over distance, every time my dear

when the sun began to fade tonight, and a white car with a headlight out pulled away from my drive, my heart was tearing with gratitude.

two years ago, my best friends from college came home with me for the first time. it was my birthday. i took them to some of my favorite places around town for food, drink, literature, and adventure, and we had a marvelous time.

there’s something strange that happens when the three of us spend more than an hour together:

time slows till you can taste each moment

the sun hugs tighter and looks like true gold

laughter is our song

whatever distance our souls have been feeling disappears like a vapor

friday night, for the first time in over six months, kathryn, kathleen, and i were simply together. and the joy of being back in communion with two of the most uniquely beautiful women i’ve ever been privileged to know was unrivaled.

though saturday’s afternoon was plain and normal–an antique mall and luncheon–the camaraderie, smiles, quips, and conversation were RICH.

i wish i could find all the right words to tell you how much they mean to me, how grateful i am to call them dear friends//sisters, and how they have changed my person and life just by being close to one another in heart, soul, and spirit. but i don’t think that i can muster up enough phrases and sentences that would mirror my deep sentiments.

thank you Abba for blessing me with the friendship of these precious women. thank you for our past, our present, and our future. may we always hold you, shining brightly, in the middle of all we are.
