I'll be back soon

Thanks for all your kind comments, emails, phone calls and letters. I'll be back to A Circle of Quiet on January 30th. We're moving through that last week of "firsts" since my Mom's death last January 29th. A year ago this afternoon, she looked at me from her hospital bed and declared, "Jesus is Lord" right before she went in for surgery. Boy are those words that I have needed to hear all doggone year, and especially this week as I miss Mom so much.

But I have declared January 30th as my New Year's Day and I will be back here to keep tabs on my life. I am looking forward to it.

I did start a photo blog at the beginning of the year, and you can see that here: A Circle of Quiet: 366 Project

Di,

hurray!! i can say now i would have missed you awfully if you'd gone...

i've been hoping that love will sustain you in the fortnight between the 15th of january and the 29th. not for the first time, i've wished i could do more to help you through this terribly hard thing you're going through. but sadly, as someone once said to me: sometimes praying is not just the best thing we can do, but also the only thing we can do.

welcome back and a big (virtual) hug,

chris

Oh, Di,
Yay. Just yay! I get to keep up with your busy, ordinary, beautiful life. I'm glad you're continuing with your writing.

Love from gray HMB today.

Hurray! I've missed you! I lost my Mom a year and a half ago and it is still painful, but we will get through it.
