She fell in love with the people

she returned because of them

because she wanted to love them better

and she did.

Though she also learned to love

the moments of the sunset over the lake

not in spite of, but because

they can't be captured in a photograph

the beauty of just sitting in front of the flowers

silent and in awe

the times of laughter with her team

because she knows they are fleeting

the walks, train rides, letters, card games, and gelato

because the moments in the middle matter

and she realized that the God she loves

is revealed in all of this.
