I have had numerous “collections” of things over the years. Ceramic Angels, porcelain teapots, cheesy paperback romance novels, even running shoes (although let’s not mention this one to my husband…it’s still a sore subject).
But the greatest collection that I have ever amassed our my people – those family who are friends and those friends who are family. The ones who’ve seen me at my absolute worst and love me anyway. The folks with whom I share memories and insight jokes, who when I am with them make me feel invincible.
Over the past few years, I’ve ignored this collection. Managing life took all of my energy – some days the effort to put one foot in front of the other was almost more than I could do. But I am emerging on the other-side, and who do I find waiting?
