True friendship is a rare thing.

After church yesterday, John headed to New Durham to go fishing with his best friend, Mark. They met in college and have been connected ever since; even when we have lived hundreds of miles apart. They have 7 beautiful children who we love dearly.  We are Aunt Joy and Uncle John…except when Mattie calls us the “alligators” (long story) and Hilary is “celery alligator:.  I had to run a few errands, so showed up at Camp Maranatha around 4:30 pm.  I could hear laughter on Little Merrymeeting Lake and knew it was them. I expected to find them in a rowboat, but instead I saw this…

(Sorry photo taken with my phone)…Not only were they in a peddleboat close to shore – the steering wasn’t working on it so they were just going sideways. We enjoyed supper and a visit with the family and then headed home. Good friends are hard to find; we have been blessed with Mark, Denise and kids.
