One of the delights of convening bi-annually with friends who “knew us when” is that we can help each other fill in the missing pieces of each of our life puzzles.
We met as eighteen-year-olds … just starting out in life… with our whole lives ahead of us… were in each others’ weddings, attended family funerals of parents and spouses… encouraged each other through some of the most difficult times of our lives… witnessed each other grow stronger throughout the many trials of life and held each others hands physically and figuratively.
There have always been times when talking to each other has been the essential lifeline in repairing broken links in our lives … since we all share such an unique perspective in our memory boxes… opened only by our shared memories.
Yesterday morning it was time to explore the back side of Edisto…the marshes and state parks. Just as beautiful and fascinating as the front side!
One wonderful tradition Brooke started years ago … she gets up early one morning and surprises us with slow cooked grits, the crisp aroma of bacon , fresh tomatoes, the best scrambled eggs… need I say more? Boy do we love that tradition!
So until tomorrow… We are already wanting to slow down time… a lesson in futility… but can’t help but want a l-o-n-g pause! Don’t we all need to break out of our routine now and then so we can see our lives from a different view!
