Our daughter's new family is chock full of creative women. They hosted an incredible bridal brunch for us all last week complete with mimosas, fruit cups, and the cutest pancake-on-a- stick platter I've ever seen. Such fabulous taste they have! We so appreciated the care and thought put into welcoming us.
Words cannot tell you how deeply grateful we are for our community all over the country who came together to celebrate with us. The girls Moira danced with way back in Germany flew in from Washington State. Our neighbor friends from the old ranch in Colorado drove late into the night to be there. We picked up our daughter-in-law who spent 9 complaint free hours in the Suburban with the three youngest and a pile of luggage. Her sister flew out from Utah after her last classes. Everyone rolled up their sleeves and made this happen together. Old friends, new friends, family.
I admit that sometimes moving frequently leaves a person feeling a bit like an exile. You connect. You care deeply. Then you leave and are once again a stranger with no ties and no familiar faces. Then times like these happen and you are reminded that you are not forgotten. Relationships formed in love do not just fade away with your leaving.
Thank you for loving her, sweet friends. Thank you.
