We live in the same city, but I haven’t laid eyes on her since my backyard project in May.
This picture was part of my Christmas present from her this year. You see, she knows me…well. She bought a beautiful silver and glass picture frame and then had one of my kids take this picture of us to put in it. She knows it will have a special place here on my desk, where right now, the bulk of my time is spent. She knows that a simple picture – a record of time spent – will give me patience until the paths of our lives start to share scenery again.
Everybody should be blessed with someone in their life who pays attention like that.
