It was an absolutely gorgeous day today and my sister was here, so I connected with a friend and went for a hike. We hadn’t seen each other in months and were teary eyed when we met up. We held our breath, faced opposite directions, and gave each other a big hug. Luckily we had arrived early enough to beat most of the crowd. It was a challenging hike following a partially ice-covered trail to the top of a waterfall. There were strategically placed benches along the way, so we took advantage and stopped to take in the scenery and chat. Since we are both caregivers, we had stories to swap and empathy to share. My friend is also a Christian and we always encourage one another spiritually as well. When it was time to part ways, we promised to continue praying for one another and stay in touch. It was a breath of fresh air.
I Found God today hiking with a friend I have missed.
