I know many of my friends in a bubble. I didn't know most of them as children. I don't know their extended families. I will live at the same location with them no longer than 3 years. Our friendships occur in a snapshot of time; though many continue long-distance. This is part of the military lifestyle. I suspect it is true of many segments of our population these days. Nonetheless, it is a privilege to get to know a piece of a new friend's history - to meet a sibling, parent or grown child, to see photos of past assignments or childhood, to be trusted with past memories.....
Today the girls and I met Stephanie and her mom at the Purple Park. I hope to be the Grannie who travels the world to visit grand kids someday. LOL I enjoyed meeting Abby's grandma (Stephanie's mom).
I neglected to take any adult photos - but this time I did get photos of more than Arielle sitting at the top of the slide. ::snort::

Living all of life before the face of God...
