It is so significant to have people in your life who stand by you through all of life's up and downs. They are there for you, share their wisdom, help you discern, listen with care, love on you... and most importantly, they pray for you. We used to belong to a Small Group at church that met every week! Jason and I are so grateful to have had this wonderful group of friends to depend on: the Sieberts, the Cos, the Lees, and the McCrearys. The Sieberts moved to Edmonton a few years ago (yup, my beloved hometown!) and it just got tougher for our group to meet together because of our growing families and their needs. Well, last Saturday, our group had a reunion! The Sieberts were visiting California and our group had a chance to share an afternoon together. It was fun to reminisce and just talk! Our house was crowded with all of our families! It was nice to "pick up where we left off" and we marveled at how easy it was for our kids to do the same even though they were just babies when our group was meeting. I feel like it's impossible to put into words how thankful I am for these people and how I miss seeing them on a regular basis!
