Gravity. That's a word that comes to mind when I think of the Barrette's. They have this undeniable attraction about them. Their house is always welcoming. Their family feels like your own family. They all have this ability to draw people in and get friends together. Kind of like gravitational pull.
That attraction... that ability to draw friends together... it was quite evident last night as about 140 people gathered to celebrate the 40th Wedding Anniversary of Bev and Joe. The collection of people that are proud to call these folks "friend" is amazing, almost as amazing as this family is.
Thank you to Ken and Josh for giving us an invitation to celebrate your wonderful Mom and Dad's marriage, and thank you to Bev and Joe for making us all feel so welcome in your lives. Here's to 40 more wonderful years.
