Within Hugs Reach

Friends are God's way of taking care of us.

This very awesome cup was given to me by a dear friend right here in Cochabamba. It was wrapped in a cute green bag along with some other very fun goodies. I feel loved!

Even though more than a year passed during which we relied on phone calls and facebook to keep in touch when we saw each other again it was as if we had never parted. She lives 5 minutes up the street from me.

Scattered around the city are a handful of ladies who live close enough to hug. We do coffee together. We get our nails done together. We get our kids together to hang out. We go to the movies together. Most importantly we talk and laugh and cry and pray and share our hearts.

An occupational hazard of mission work is getting caught in the revolving door of hellos and goodbyes. Maybe that makes us treasure more the times we have when we live a quick drive from each other.

A while ago I started to take pictures with my friends. I call the folder where they are stored ‘&’. These images are so precious to me.
