After a long day of working outside, I was sitting on the patio indulging in some reading. Ethel interrupted and asked "can I sit with you." The following half hour offered some of the best conversation I've had all week. It was fascinating to hear what is on her mind and what she feels is important. I feel like I am lucky that she shares her feelings with me.
A little later Lucy came and took Ethel's seat, and wanted to talk about softball, chickens, and antique stores. All the things that we love to share.
