The four of us hadn't been together since 1999. It was Becky's idea to have a reunion, and she's the one who put it all together. One came down from Washington, one came down from Alaska, and we spent the weekend in Solvang.
Over 10 years had passed. We live in different parts of the world, are married to very different men, and each of us has our own set of trials. Perhaps we're not as idealistic as we were then but we certainly are a lot wiser. And the friendship hasn't changed.
In the course of the three days we were together, there was very little silence between us. We had a lot to catch up on! We talked about the funny things and the hard things. We laughed and cried and hugged.
And my soul was filled to the brim in a way that it hasn't been in a long time.
