A couple of tender mercies

One of the highlights of Boston was getting an email from my friend Rochelle. We met through blogging a few years ago but since Texas is super far from Washington it was kind of hard for us to get together. When she told me that she was coming to Boston with her husband for a wedding I was so excited! We were able to get together for lunch and had the best conversation. Her husband, Greg, was a gem and was happy to entertain C so Rochelle and I could enjoy our short time together. During the few moments C was occupied with his food Greg also got to participate in the conversation. I was feeling particularly frustrated with my life at the time and they both had some great words of wisdom and encouragement. That visit was a tender mercy for me and I can't wait to see them again when they come out to Logan this summer.

Another tender mercy I had was being able to reconnect with my dear friend Sherene. We both grew up in Oregon but she moved to Boston when we were in high school. It had been over 20 years since we had seen each other. I was so happy that we were able to get together.

I especially loved that we were able to get our kids together. 

Gabby and Eden totally hit it off...and Dylan was such a good sport hanging out with C.

Being able to reconnect with an old friend is some of the best therapy. It's crazy what a couple of hours of talking and sharing can do for the soul. Spending time with these two amazing women did for my soul...
