My friends live in a wonderland akin to coming home to a home I've never known. It's fantastic. Sunday afternoon we drove down from our church retreat to be with Kat's family. Julia and I were thrilled to be meeting Kat's people, as we call them. We met friends, parents, and the boy (of whom we approve, basically goes without saying, because he's so good for and to her).
Basically, everyone should have friends who's homes feel like home and who's families feel like family.
This is a great blessing.
