We are all the sum of many parts. And while I sat here and tried to think of a more interesting way to say this I realized I was wasting time and Abigail is going to be waking soon and I have a lot to do before book club tonight.
But it fits, especially when I think about our trip back East — driving along highways, stopping to pick up some of the pieces of our lives, dusting them off so they shine again.
We got to meet up with some Hokie friends on our way down to South Carolina. Gayle and I had due dates just a day apart. Graham ended up being born about a week ahead of Abigail. We hadn’t seen each other since the babies, now 18 months, were born. Gayle makes me laugh, the good hearty kind. And thanks to Facebook, I felt like I already knew Graham. I didn’t think it was possible, but he is even more precious in person.
Our next stop was South Carolina for 3 days. It was a treat with its hot and sunny disposition.
There were cousins everywhere, so Abigail played and played. To me there’s nothing better than great-grandparents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins swirling around making their special blend of chaos.
