The In-Laws Made Some Friends Today!

I'm as proud as a mama who put together a successful play date for a few four year olds. But I had nothing to do with this meeting, except that we took Mama and Papa Bear to church with us Sunday. They filled out the visitor form and put it in the offering plate because, unlike us, they forgot that when you do that in a Baptist Church, you will have a couple of Baptists on your doorstep on Tuesday evening even if you are obviously busy.

But since Mama and Papa Bear have nothing to do on Tuesday evening, or any evening for that matter, they welcomed their visitor and talked to him until he was the one glancing at his watch and searching for a reason to leave. He did tell them of another couple in the church who had lived in a town near Mama and Papa Bear. Today, that couple called Mama and Papa and then came to visit. Turns out they had friends in common, were about the same age, and liked to play Forty-Two.

Until next time, may you have blessings and good friends,
Marti
