Quite frankly, I don't know when it happened. Meredith has just always been there smiling and laughing. There's no specific instance when I "met" her (at least that I remember), but we've endured countless years of speech and debate together. Never once have I seen her upset or irritated. Her love for God and others is most definitely apparent. In the words of Paula Dean (and almost every other southern woman), she's a sweet heart.
Meredith is putting her great demeanor and vast knowledge (not only is she pretty and happy, she's brilliant) to good use this fall. DePauw University is lucky to get her, and so is their Political Science program.
I'm happy that we got to explore the Indiana Museum of Art grounds, talk, meet mean men (ok, so maybe I'm not "happy" about that one), and take some pictures while we were at it.
