I'm Still Here!

Just popping in for a moment to say I'm doing okay, thanks to the loving and prayerful support of so many friends. Those of you in the blogging community have touched my heart so much with your comments and emails.

I've got quite a lot to tell you about in the upcoming days. This has been quite an experience. The timing of my mom's death in the middle of Hurricane Ike has complicated logistics a bit, as my dad is buried in Houston. On the Galveston side of Houston. Where the cemetery is now minimally functional with 150 trees down, no power, and one phone. We go down tomorrow to take care of the burial, with the graveside services adjusted from the original plan.

And then there is the little matter of the deer that decided I didn't have enough on my To Do List and rammed into the side of my car 4 evenings ago. Picture to come.

I'm thinking there's a massage with my name on it in the next week or two. . . .

Oh, sweet friend, if I were there, I would rub your shoulders! You DO deserve a massage. We'll be here when you get back, and we're there in our prayers.
