Dinner for 24?

It was great fun last night to have friends over that we have not seen in some time along with missionary friends heading back to the field in Mexico. There were 16 children and 8 adults and it was really a nice relaxing night for me! It is hard to believe because I have not always been up to entertaining that many people. Children are so easy though if they are well-behaved and these certainly were - even my own! :)

My dear sweet friend, Jen, just jumped right in and cut up the salad and potatoes and just got right to work - just like a sister. I love her to death. We have delightful conversations about theology and homeschooling and all sorts of things. She makes me think and I enjoy her company immensely. She is my dear friend recently gone to mission work in Mexico so our times together are rare now and all the more dear.

The other familes are dear friends I work with and have known for a long time (before working together) and we just enjoy our time mutually a great deal. It is a wonderful thing when all the adults and children get along with NO issues. How marvelous it is to have good friends! I am blessed.

Enjoy that fellowship!

It's always nice to have a friend who will talk about homeschooling AND theology! I have one like that, too. It's a blessing, isn't it?

Friends like that are such a blessing. They make our lives richer and much more interesting. I'm glad you had a wonderful time, and hope their trip is safe and fruitful!
