Amazing Grace

At Freedom Friends, we always start with gratitudes. Lately, my gratitude always seems to be the same: I am so grateful to be there.

My heart is filled with gratitude for a wonderful weekend. It was great to be able to spend time with Kirsten and her family, as well as her beloved Colin. Her ring is shiny, they seem very happy, and everyone was a very good sport about running half of a very long race (and props to Andrew for going the whole way).

I was reminded over the weekend what a gift it is to have real conversations, where you take the time to really listen and respond. I had the opportunity to have several conversations like that over the past few days, and I feel blessed.

So thank you to everyone for a lovely break. Thank you for giving me food and a place to stay, for driving me from place to place, for making me laugh, and for making me think. I miss you all and I hope to see you again soon.

  1. Ashley, it was good to see you, to spend time with you, and to listen and share with you. I hope your trip home was uneventful, and also your Monday at work. I dig your blog. I also really dig the Douglas Steere quote. You go girl.
