Sometimes there is so much going on that you don't have time to write about it. I have been very busy at work these last two weeks. I finally crashed on Saturday with a cold, and today we celebrated All saints Day at our church. Next week will be just as busy.

My mother sent me some diabetic cookbooks because she is worried that I am not eating well.

Next weekend we are going to Arkansas to see the Razorbacks play University of South Carolina in football.

Our Pastoral care ministers asked me to give testimony at a Service of Healing and Wholeness we are having in November.


I missed Will a lot today. Especially at the youth worship service tonight--that always makes me cry. I thought about him being in heaven, how we will probably meet as equals, not mother and son one day. Then I realized that I was the only one in the world that had had the privilege of being his mother. I know that sounds obvious, but it seemed profound to me at the time.


We are beginning the descent into the "Holiday Season." I have to grit my teeth and hang on.

I had a very similar moment...
"Then I realized that I was the only one in the world that had had the privilege of being his mother. I know that sounds obvious, but it seemed profound to me at the time."

One day, when I was bemoaning the "accident" that killed her yet again, I suddenly remembered that her birth had also been an "accident". She was my sixth child and that pregnancy was never planned, just an accident of circumstance when I was so overwhelmed with my daily life that I "forgot" to refill my birth control pills and my mate and I were having a moment of relative peace.

"The universe" or "God(whateverthatis)" has an uncanny knack for making things right for us when we least expect it. We are so lucky, are we not?

Yes, and I hope things are made right for you soon.
