A friend of mine turned 70 years old the other day and her family threw her a “surprise” birthday party today. Evidently, she was tipped off and it wasn’t quite the surprise that everyone had hoped for, but she played along nicely. One of her friends made a beautiful mural of photos that showed her birthplace in Czechoslovakia, including the very home that she lived in as an infant. I have known her for years, but didn’t know much about her homeland. It was so interesting to hear her talk about the area and things that she remembered. It is amazing how people’s lives are so different and yet intertwined. I am grateful that we have crossed paths and reconnected.
I Found God today grateful for a woman in my life.
