Thin places. These are places where the line between Heaven and Earth are faint, leaving a pot of the eternal and temporary steaming like a delicious soup.
A large table filled with sweet souls is one of those thin places. We talk and lose track of time and eat food that makes your mouth water and put away our phones and share stories and laugh. Oh the laughter. It a laughter of joy and happiness and love and that warm feeling you get when you know you're in on something great.
We celebrated Ry on Tuesday night with a surprise party at her home in Birmingham. Ry is one of those people that make you feel like you're the only one in the room. She listens with her heart. She loves deeply and loves well and it was a joy to celebrate her life.
