I have to admit I get a warm fuzzy each time one of you comments on what I've written -- just because you cared enough to visit here and do so. I so appreciate every comment and the supportive ones REALLY feed my ego!
Alas, time is becoming shorter these days. No, it's not due to Daylight Savings Time (although that did wreck a perfectly good hot-rod dream this morning). But I'm going on a sabbatical from the memes and web-crawling.
I have the privilege of helping some friends who are really going through a rough time. It doesn't look to be temporary, and it doesn't look to be an easy fix-em-up and off they go. I think the time investment is going to be a big one. But I do feel this is a special gift the Lord is giving me to help in any way that I can, so rather than lament that I won't have the time/energy to continue engaging in the memes I've come to love, I'll just say, I'll see you when I can see you, and I'll understand if you spend your time elsewhere!
Here are some absolutes though:
Susan, when you land at Dulles this summer, I simply MUST see you. So I'll be checking in to monitor your trip plans.
Thom, you make me laugh, especially on the days that drain my energy. So I'll be checking in to laugh, even when I don't have any energy to make an intelligent (or otherwise) comment.
Quilly, you make me think and you help me grow, so I'll be by on occasion to see what the Lord is doing in Friday Harbor!
Lidna, you help me see the lighter side of life so I'll stop by occasionally to be YOUR cheerleader.
All of you who have been so gracious, generous, and encouraging, I covet your prayers for this journey. (Susan, this is a youtube video of Satchmo singing What a Wonderful World. Don't feel bad that you're on dial up. It would make you cry.)
