We spent Friday night at the "clearest lake in Kansas" with some dear friends and our little boy. We had the perfect weekend, and then it ended with a very unfortunate event, resulting in the loss of some major property. We spent the rest of our trip, now a bit extended, watching them handle a very tough situation with grace and unshaken faith, which makes them even more dear to us. We love you, Freys!
When I think about what COULD have happened, had our sons been with them, or had my husband been standing in a different spot, I have been so fearful and thankful. Also, some of our other close friends had a big scare with their young nephew. But he is doing well. It's been an emotional weekend, making me very thankful for everyone around me.
