Cath's church is in charge of the banquet tomorrow. Since it's St. Patrick's day, the youth pastor decided it would be cool to do shepherd's pie and pistachio salad...a truly Irish main dish with a little green salad. The preparation fell to Cath and me and another couple from the church...one we have known for years, having had their kids in class and been lucky enough to get to know as real life adults. That being said, the four of us spent the afternoon getting ready for tomorrow. It was an amazing experience. It was as if we had worked together our whole lives. We moved seamlessly between tasks, never at a loss for something to do. The similarities in work styles were amazing. The ability to see tasks that needed to be done and do them went unsaid and assumed. What could have been an uncomfortable division of labor turned into a delightful afternoon of good humor and good work. We're tired, sore, and happily ready to warm and serve tomorrow. With the luck of the Irish, every thing will go as planned. Regardless, today was one of those rare days that will remain a positive memory and an experience for which we give thanks. Hopefully, you will find the same symbiosis today, and you know you are loved!
