I am grateful for this fountain, and the beautiful park that goes with it. I am grateful for the company of friends and the tradition of a picnic on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I look forward to this outing a couple times of year. I am grateful to see Haley my friends daughter home from college, for the first time since she left this last summer. She has grown and changed in so many ways, college has been good to her. It was hard watching her go, seeing her family miss her. Knowing that my turn to let my little ones leave the nest is not far away. But today, spending time with her I know that this change is necessary one. Good things come from it.
