Having lived away from my family for several years, I try to make the most of being back at my hometown. What a blessing to be able to sit on the patio, drinking lemonade with my sister or in G and P’s garage, talking. I have coffee several mornings a week with my dad. Karrie and I call it our “fix.” Today she and I did some of my favorite things all in one day: went to a coffee bar and talked, had lunch and talked, watched Serenity while I finished my fake-a-gamo, and we also talked. Could a day be more perfect?
