This past weekend, we had the rare pleasure of seeing one of my favorite childhood homes, both inside and out. To make a long story short, I wrote a letter to the current owners telling them our story behind the house, about how my parents bought the property in the early 80's and farmed it for ten years before getting to build their dream house on it. And about how our time there was cut shorter than we would have planned when my dad got sick and we had to move back to town. The owners, being the gracious, wonderful people that they are, invited us out for a visit. It was a day I'll never forget, such a special treat to feel so connected to my dad's dream again, to see the views he hoped he'd see into old age. Thank you, Gary and Nancy, for blessing our family with such a sweet day!
