First, let me say that I’m so disappointed that I have no pictures to document what I am about to share. :( I guess I was thinking about that hugs instead of the camera.
There is a big camp, called Soul Quest, hosted by our local Christian college, which took place last week. We always love being a part of this, making a point to go each evening to worship with the hundreds of youth and adults that are on campus. (Asa, our oldest, goes as a camper and loves it!) One of the best parts of Soul Quest is seeing many friends that we rarely get to see. It’s like a big reunion and it’s wonderful. :)
Then on Saturday we picked Asa up from Soul Quest and dropped him off at church camp where he is serving as a counselor this week. (Yes, Asa is just a little bit busy this summer. Ah to have the energy of a 15 year old!)
I had heard that my friend Donna, whom I haven’t seen for way too long, was going to be at camp this week with her boys. Therefore, I hoped that when we dropped Asa off I might have just a small chance to hug her neck and catch up for a little while. Well guess what? Donna was the first person I saw when we arrived at the camp ground. And then guess what else? We actually got to visit for over an hour while as our boys played (and got filthy) together. :) And then guess what else? (Why yes, I am excited about my weekend.) After I had visited with Donna for a while, her mom showed up and I got to hug and visit with her too! Donna’s mom has always been a lovely encouragement to me.
I left camp with my cup overflowing.
(I also left with a few ticks, but let’s definitely not talk about that…) ;)
