I love the lifelong friendships where you can pick right back up where you started, no matter how much time has passed. Where there's comfort in knowing that the person across the table knows you--really knows you--and loves you anyway, warts and all. Heaven's hope is sweeter knowing these dear friends will be there.
As I head to Denver early tomorrow morning (to meet you, Robin Lee Hatcher, at DIA...yay!), I'll be counting the treasure of friendship many times over, and am praying even now that you have these kinds of friendships in your life too.
And while you can "go home" again, in a sense, I'm already missing my family in Nashville and am reminded that home isn't so much a place anymore...as it is people.
Much love, friends, and more pics next week from ICRS!
