We share the same birthday
the same middle name
and quite a few other things…
…and last week Abigail and I got to the same camp and we were joyously reunited.
This story began many years ago. I was probably around four when I met her and She had probably just been born. Apparently, we were both too young to remember this momentous occasion. 🙂
We never really talked – I moved elsewhere, and she was 4 years younger than me.
But a few months ago something happened.
We started talking.
Pretty soon, I invited her to Delight
, a group of teenage girls who are pursuing
Jesus and the creative arts, and we started regularly exchanging Facebook messages.
As a singer/songwriter, she fit right with all the other Delight girls.
Then one day, she said “Hey, can you Skype?”
Somewhere in that two hour conversation I said “Hey, you should come to camp!”
Then a few weeks before camp she messaged me and said “I can come!”
Oh…She also plays the Ukelele!
I might have commandeered it a few times…
Boy, was it fun!
I was swooning, just ask Abby… the light was so amazing!
We had to break our photoshoot up in two parts due to 2 things…
Horseflies and the dinner bell.
I’m not really sure if she was singing
or if she was very exuberantly waving away horsefly…
But I’m going to imagine that she was singing the Sound of Music.
*The hills are alliiivvee!*
And that, my friends, is Abigail.
Abigail, I had so much fun with you…screaming over horseflies, singing together… Thanks for teaching me some ukulele, I loved every minute of it.
I can’t wait to get to know you more! Here’s to many more Skype dates and photoshoots!
