Two friends … I want to pay tribute to two friends. Through cold, through thick, through mud, through projects like building the treehouse … I figured a picture would be good.
My two friends. Right boot; left boot.
Been thinking about folks in Oklahoma as of lately. Last night my son and I walked back into our home at around 9pm, after an order to evacuate came during the afternoon. There was the Bluebell fire that burned about 4 acres, which was a lot considering that there are homes all around where the fire was. So, yeah, I now have an understanding, to some degree, of what its like to be told to evacuate, not knowing for sure if I would see our house again. Get the dogs, and pictures, and papers, and some clothes.
I did some thinking …
I thought of the survivors in Oklahoma. Some of those folks have been through some hell. I also thought about thankfulness. Yeah, I am. I am thankful. And does this have to do with my two friends I mentioned? Just that you find yourself thinking of friends who go through strange, disruptive things: friends who help each other out. Friends who walk with each other … like a good pair of boots, usually one left and one right. Winston Churchill once said “If you are going through hell, keep going.”
