Last night in Echo was like a scene from a postcard. It was a gift and a blessing from God. Amidst national sadness there was this postcard. Sweet snippets of couples, families, precious families.
The golden horses pulled the wagon loaded with folks of all ages. Many times. Mr. Meyers directed them to the best Christmas lights in town. Gus and Call did their horse work.
Somewhere in my heart I have held this postcard for my entire life. It came to life last night. The little groups got on and off of the wagon. The shop lights and street lights twinkled. We shared hot apple cider, cookies, mulled wine. We giggled and little kids were silly and safe and happy. The cafe was full of diners. Handel's Messiah filled the community center.
