“Trappings and charm wear off, I’ve learned. The book of welcome says, Let people see you. They see that your upper arms are beautiful, soft and clean and warm, and then they will see this about their own, some of the time. It’s called having friends, choosing each other, getting found, being fished out of the rubble. it blows you away, how this wonderful event happened – me in your life, you in mine.” (Anne Lamott – Small Victories: Spotting Improbably Moments of Grace)

Thank you for being in my life, me friends.
