None-the-less…I did have the honor of dining with Mrs. Nancy Campbell, Selah and her sister (adopted from Liberia – part of the Campbell Clan), Meadow (on the end with red curly hair…guess who SHE’S related too also) and Janice from Oregon (sorry Janice, I can’t remember your last name!!) and her 3 most adorable daughters. The little girls were so delightful. They were drawn to all the shiny candles on the table and just couldn’t hardly wait to sit down and eat. They were more concerned about losing their seat at the table though – Meadow asked, “Must we go get in line (for food)?” I said, “No, I am going to serve you, so just take a seat!” And there was a collective sigh of relief, all 4 little girls KNEW they would not get bumped off this table! Hearing their oohs and aaahs made it all worth it.
My only regret: that I didn’t have my own little Hannah to share the evening with. Next year, Hannah. Definitely next year!
Other friends at the banquet….
