Coming home to my friend's house
Kathy stayed in Dallas while we moved to St. Louis, Mexico City, Puerto Rico, San Antonio, Atlanta, San Jose, and back to San Antonio again. I had many reasons to be in and out of Dallas over the years. It was always a comfort driving in when I turned on to her street. No matter how late I arrived she always stayed up to greet me and help carry my things in. My room was always ready. Photos of us during vacations we have shared were tucked in with pictures of her children growing up. A carefully chosen mug was laid out for the next morning's coffee.
In those early years of marriage I had no idea we would be such gypsies! God knew I would need friends along the way. He gave me a gift early in my life journey who has continued to bless me to this very day! All that we have shared and the fact that we are still friends reminds me of His faithfulness.I cannot help but be in praise of His grace!
