That joy was multiplied by all the many other steps I have shared with them and their families over the years. All of us have been friends for a long, long time, and more than just friends, we have been fellow homeschoolers. Because we have been, to a certain extent, outlaws and rebels together, we have built some powerful bonds. Our relationships one to another are very close and mind-bogglingly multi-faceted; we have been each others' parents and children, teachers and students, best friends and boyfriends and girlfriends. These are the people who need never ring my doorbell.; they know they are welcome to walk right at any time, day or night. And I know they feel the same way about me.
So blessings to you, Hannah and Musa. May your joys always be multiplied by the many people who love you.
