I absolutely love it when old friends come to visit and we have such a great time. At the end of the visit, you simply don't want them to leave because they have enriched your home with their joyful spirits. The conversations were invigorating, satisfying and lasted long into the wee hours of the morning.
I was lucky to be at BYU with both Jon and Chastity - we all lived in the Foreign Language Student Residence at BYU. It is, bar none, the best place to live, and meet people who are not only intelligent, talented and fun - but people who enjoy learning, and experiencing the world outside of their comfort zones.
If I had my way, we'd all live in the same neighborhood, or our own compound, so our kids could associate with such fascinating people.
It makes me feel so content and happy to know that people I respected and admired in my youth, are still people I respect and admire.
