Next weekend, I will be headed back to Lancaster to meet a new Amish friend, Katie S.. A Mennonite friend made the introduction and Katie has a room to rent at her farm. I will be renting the room so that I may come and go as I please during the year. I’m looking forward to meeting Katie. She was recently widowed and doesn’t like to live alone. I can’t wait to hear her stories and learn about her life. She sounds so sweet on the phone. I am looking forward to becoming friends with her and, hopefully, part of her extended family.
