The Arrival

Now I will sit here and try to explain to you how it felt to see them again...but I might as well tell you that I never could explain that feeling. There are no words. It just feels like another home in my heart...to be wherever they are...I remember Miss Vicki saying, " I can't believe you're here!" Neither could I.
I remember that first hug...Some things in life just amount to this: "sometimes words cannot explain".
Calista was just elated to be near them again. I sat there on the couch next to Miss Vicki with her holding Carson. Bro. Malcolm was talking to Don. It felt so peaceful to me...to finally be here...to just be around them and talk to them in person again. I remember thinking, "I don't want to ever forget they way I feel right now".
You know, sometimes I think: Three and a half years ago I didn't even know them, I had never seen them, I had never heard their names...and now they mean the world to me...to us. I am so thankful for this turn in my life. And not just for them, but for all the friends that I have made and reunited with over the past three years...it has blessed my life in so many ways. God always knows what we need...in every area...I needed close friends...I needed her. I always will. For as long as I live Miss Vicki and Bro. Malcolm will be in a very special place in my heart. We could never have asked for better friends than the friends that they have been to us!
