Leanna in the center. . . is a very good friend of Fiona on the left and Jennie on the right.
Leanna is visiting home from Argentina for several weeks and asked if she could come for tea. . .
(well technically asked if we could meet for tea)
I was so happy to have these girls over.
women of faith .. .
women who care about one another .. .
women who know how to laugh. . .
I left them still chatting on the driveway. .
I had an appointment to keep. . .
Lord bless these ladies .. .in their lives. .
