Today, we went out to eat. We met up with some old friends from years gone by and were able to catch up on life news. I love these encounters. :)
What was really funny was THEIR daughter said, before they came into the restaurant; "Wouldn't it be great to run into the Minichs?" :) We thought it was great to run into them! :)
The last time we saw them was a few years ago, before Alli. :) So here we were with a new daughter and they had LOADS of questions. :)
They asked how long it took for her to settle in. What kind of behaviors did she have? And much, much more. It was a joy to share our journey; but at the same time, it made me realize how different we are; how different our journey is.
And you know what? I don't mind being different. I love it that my girlies are a part of my life and that they are HEALING and they are BLOSSOMING....
As we were leaving the restaurant.... 6 girls walked out and our friend said, "WOW, what a bunch of beautiful young ladies". :)
And he was right.... They are ALL beautiful, inside and out.
It was good meeting up with old friends. :)

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
