Is there any better feeling than knowing a friend is coming to town? Especially a friend you haven’t seen in quite some time. You think about where you’ll take them to eat and the sights you want them to see. You think about the sweet “hello” hug and try not to think of that sad “goodbye” hug. Well one of my dear friends is coming to town next week. I’m not cleaning the house too much (sorry Mom!) or teaching my dog any new tricks (sorry Zeke!), but I did just get a haircut and I’ve been working a little bit more on my tan. But most importantly, I’m excited about the conversations we’ll have and the time we’ll spend in my backyard throwing a baseball. Is there any better feeling than knowing a friend is coming to town who’ll play catch with you? Of course not. There’s no better feeling.
