All Love

We all have favorite movie lists.  This one is on mine:

I don't want to spoil anything if you haven't seen it, but the gist of the story is a man and an entire village who links arms with his crazy.  They look like idiots doing it, but they don't care.  They have compassion, they support, they love him to freedom...

We got to spend this past weekend with people from our village.  They know us and love us and have stood beside us, linking arms with our crazy over the years. 

It was so good; so delightful.  And we left wanting more.  More days, more time, more laughs, more stories, more of it all...  It was all love.

What greater thing is there for...human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent, unspeakable memories.
George Elliot
Thank you Phil, Julie, Jake (we missed you, Jonathan!), Jeanne, Matthew, Janine, Abby, Nate, Ellie, Kondo, Melissa, Judah, Jael... We love you.  And thank you for loving us...for being a part of our village.  We are so blessed to be joined with you all for life, arm in arm.

All love.
