Mark’s here! He’s doing some visits for his work, and stayed the night. We ate an overly-salty dinner (not my fault – honestly!) and then had a very pleasant evening visiting. Beth stopped by for a different reason, and stayed for some lovely conversation.
It’s awfully nice to connect with family, and I feel blessed to have had lots of that in-person over the past year. (We are scattered all over the country.) I’m also grateful for Zoom and a video-messaging app that my family has been using, thanks to my brilliant sister-in-law Rachel (she introduced us to it). It makes it possible to connect with some visuals, along with email and actual phone calls. We really do live in an amazing time.
