having an indoor picnics, when rain interupted our plans to have one outside
Listening to stories
Cuddling with little ones
Answering the familiar question, Mrs. *, will you tell me a story about when you were a little girl?"
Watching the little "man of the house" helping Mama with chores, as each morning he brought produce from the garden without being asked to do so and helping to feed and water the animals.
Working on projects
And asking Rebecca every question about raising chickens I could think of except, "Why did the Chicken cross the road?"
But I knew my visit with them was over when Andrew came in the house on Saturday afternoon and announced, " Mrs. *, I'm sorry to tell you, your family is here." They had come to pick me up. I was so glad to see my family, and so sorry to leave this wonderful friend and her family behind. But first we made plans to have them to come to our house for a week next summer.
Among God's great blessings on our lives are treasured and faithful friends.
