To love and be loved, in particular

To love and be loved. Those are the words that filled my heart as I returned from a quick overnight at Estes Park with five dear friends. We have known one another for many years. We have laughed, cried, rejoiced, mourned, prayed, studied, and shared the particulars of our lives. My heart is full.

This past week on September 11 folks posted memories and memorials, remembrances and accolades. Over the years I have heard many stories as we all recounted where we were and what was happening on that day 17 years ago. As I look at the weather and hear about the current hurricane I am remembering loved ones from last year who had family in the path of that storm. As
