Three years ago a tired couple who were backpacking across NB randomly stopped at our house and asked if they could borrow our backyard as a campsite. Simon and Mieke were from the south of France and we had a beautiful evening with them, and in the morning we shared a warm cup of coffee. Meike was expecting a child so we chatted about all things baby. It was wonderful.
Simon and Meike taught me that sometimes life brings you amazing opportunities in the form of strangers. Welcome this.
The next summer, as I drove home the twisty-turny roads of Route 114 towards Hillsborough, I noticed a couple of cyclists labouring their way in the darkest, stormiest rain.
