Last Friday, we met two other families at the park and let our kids run around in the grass for an hour or so. I snapped a few photos and posted this one to Facebook over the weekend. One of my friends complimented it, admiring the sunshine and the angle and other technical bits.

But what really makes this picture amazing is that because of misunderstandings, hurt feelings and strained relationships, the three families had not been together for about four years. Our kids had never played together.

Last Friday, we were officially reunited – and yes, it felt so good. And other than that Peaches and Herb reference, I am left without words.

This post will be linked to Wordless Wednesday and Wordful Wednesday. Because I’m complicated like that.
