My wife and I traveled to California recently to see our friends Jill & Eric Lacher.
They drove the forty-five minutes from San Jose to Oakland to sit in rush hour traffic to pick us from the airport. Rather than be frustrated and relieved to see us, their smiles beamed from inside their car.
Hugs abounded and smiles continued as we entered the car heading to San Jose.
We exchanged small talk and stories.
We listened and laughed.
