This afternoon a dear friend came visiting. When he was about to leave, he walked by Hannah and she asked him where he was going now. He answered, “I’m going to [a nearby town] to worship practice. I hope you have a good evening.”
The next thing I heard was Hannah’s sweet voice, with just the right inflection, replying, “I hope you have a good practice, too.” Then she happily skipped upstairs and started singing O Christmas Tree.
Our friend summed up the moment well when he came into the kitchen and said, “That made me happy.”
