Our new neighbors moved in a few months ago and we have been meaning to get together. Things finally worked out and we had the couple over today. We had seen and spoken to the wife a few times as she stayed here while her husband was tying up some loose ends in their previous state. This was the first time we were able to sit down with both her and her husband. The topic of careers came up and my dad talked about his work as a meteorologist. He also talked about research he did regarding the ionosphere. He has told me about this before, and quite frankly the whole thing baffles me. Our neighbor worked in radio and knew all about the ionosphere. He was also fascinated with weather. As the afternoon continued, he noticed the photos on the wall and realized that my dad had taken them. He was also a photographer. From there, they discussed cameras, scanners, and printers. It was amazing how much they had in common. I loved seeing my dad talk about his passions with someone who understood and enjoyed the same things. We had such a wonderful afternoon visit and I am sure it is just the first of many.
I Found God today in the similarities between my dad and a new neighbor.
