The picture is from a couple of years back. I could say it is a bit old, but I realize that would mean that I am a bit older.
I believe this picture was taken by Tiffany Gonzales at a party at her house. Football might have been involved.
What is most important at this moment – is that friendship is definitely involved.
My friend Irene recently endured a very hateful incident. She has had the grace and courage and faith and hope and trust to share her pain and process her pain publicly on Facebook.
A number of her friends have responded with statements of support, long-distance hugs, and prayers. Tonight I decided that, in addition to my words, I would post this picture of Irene and me.
I am honored and grateful to be her friend. I give thanks for Irene and for all who share this journey with me.
See you along the Trail.
