Tonight we joined some friends at a small get together to see some old friends who moved away, but were back for a visit.
They lost their young son in a car accident shortly before they left here a couple of years ago and the reason for their visit was related to this. So, there was, of course, a lot of discussion as to how they are coping and dealing with this loss. Which naturally, led to the discussion of a few other tragedies that have recently befallen some other mutual friends.
It was sad and difficult, but uplifting as well. They're coming it through it with grace and optimism and it seems to have brought their family even closer together.
I'm not the best at keeping in touch, so it was great to reconnect. And there was plenty of fun, light conversation as well.
After we returned home and got the kids in bed, HH and I got to stay up for a bit and just enjoy a sweet, smiley, and chatty Darling A. She's three months old today and I can't believe it! Her smile seems to be getting even bigger and she's got these fabulous little dimples in those chubby cheeks. I love it!
