Today a friend from far away came to us. Well, came most of the way to us anyways. Close enough that he was just a morning's drive away and we could meet for some Chicago style deep dish before we had to part ways again.
Matt was a volunteer with us almost the entire time we were there, so it was extra awesome to see him today.
The pizza was good, the corny jokes he always has up his sleeve were good, the conversation was good, seeing him in person was perfect.
Today I am thankful for a much needed Corrymeela reunion with Matt.
I know that at one point he was worried that the deep dish pizza was going to win all of my Gratitude for today over him, but he never had anything to worry about. All of my gratitude was reserved for seeing his face and seeing him well.
