Maribeth & Katie, resting at home before Katie's surgery.
Maribeth & Alan
On Sunday, I had a speaking engagement (more about this in the posting above), and while I did that, Gregg and David shopped for David's college computer needs. As we were returning to the Island, we met Maribeth & Alan on the boat, on their way back from Bellingham. We stopped at our local pub for beverages, and then went to pick up everyone's favorite Thai food (Sawatdy's) for a feast back at home. We sat up late into the night, talking. It was soul-filling to be together again.
Today, our friends got up early, packed, and are now on their way back to Kansas City. I miss them, and am so thankful that when they do come to visit, we are able to host them here. We love you, MB & Big Al! Come again soon.
