A Friend's Father
Looking back through my pictures, I came across this amazing moment.
This August, I found myself back in my hometown sitting in the living room of a high school best friend.
Her father died unexpectedly. It was so untimely for the family, so heartbreaking and being in that house without the sound of his voice felt off. He was always so welcoming and supportive of me. Always a cheerleader.
So there we were. Spending the last moments we could with my friend before she left again to go back to the west coast and before we went on our way. My mom was holding Spencer and my friend Abby's son Peyton was entertaining her.
In the middle of all this sadness was a little boy and a little baby smiling and playing. Two little rays of light. Such a special and such a needed moment. Abby's Dad would have adored it.
Abby's baby and mine.
