This is where I first saw Brenda and Denise. They had determination etched on their faces and were in their element as they organized what had been in their hearts and minds for several months of time. I recognized that they were both PAST and PRESENT for me…they had created this JUNCTION; they had been there and would be there. I wanted to hug them both tightly and share the insight, but was well aware that they were busy beyond the mark.
My heart dropped right into my stomach and tears sprung from my eyes and I just hugged him as tight as I possibly could. I needed him to feel my thankfulness. Could he feel it through a simple hug? How could he have known how much that painting meant to me? My body was shaking with overwhelming emotion. How could he know the magnitude of joy it would bring to my heart? I will treasure this incredible gesture for the rest of my life and count myself blessed.
