. . . is the face of a friend. My friend Beth was here in the Upstate to visit her son for Family Weekend at Furman University. She was able to come by (bearing sunflowers) for a precious hour of visiting face to face. We had only met once before in real life, at the Image of the Maker retreat, and it was truly a joy to share a cup of coffee and conversation. She has such a gentle and encouraging spirit. The best part of a home is truly who we share it with.
