For the past 10 weeks, I’ve been meeting with a group of young women on Monday nights, and we’ve been sharing stories of pain. What we discovered is we are each our own kind of lonely and our own kind of lovely. We left with a stack of cards describing what we will carry from each others’ stories and what our hope is for one another as we move forward. I was reminded of a quote I heard back in March that kicked off my counseling journey: “Good things happen to people who are known.” 🎁

We visited our neighbors Rick & Joyce today, who gave us a beautiful piece of furniture for El’s room that had been Joyce’s mothers. El saw a little tree at the table and began to decorate it. It had also been Joyce’s mother’s. These neighbors were already dear to us when we lived at Cedarwood the first time, and we’re even more grateful to them now. Rick was the one who first mentioned our house was going to be for sale again. The light is so beautiful in their log home–we should come back for more photos!
