I'm not even going to try to encapsulate this week's visit with the gorgeous, lovely, beautiful Kirsten. Oh, what a rich visit, so blessed in so many ways. I'm trying not to think about the morning, when we will have to say goodbye.
Yesterday was the day of tears and deep conversation. Today was pure fun: our StoryCorps interview (oh. my. goodness.) and a fun day out at the beach, playing in the waves with our bare feet and with Kirk, our paparazzo. In a little bit, we're heading out for some last-minute girl-time over yummy cheesecake dessert.
Thank you, Kirsten, for the gift of your presence and conversation and deep friendship. I love you from the place in my heart only you can ever inhabit. And thank you, God, for your overwhelming goodness and creativity and grace.
