Sometimes I sit and stare at a blank screen and try to gather some worthy collection of words to express. As much as a worn-out body can muster. And then I think how much easier it was before the Internet. There are so many bloggers out there writing such smart things.
I don’t even belong in the same category.
Yet, I thank you. A very sappy, excessive, over-the-top….thank you!
How we have been blessed to know and be a part of so many loving people’s lives, I’ll never know, but man do our people know how to love. The deliveries, the gifts, the comments, the emails, the tweets, the texts, the visits, the snail mail cards…transform my life.
Reef told me one evening last week that he “has pictures in his eyes.” I sure got a kick out of that, realizing it’s dreams that he is referring to. I adore how his awe of the world and his continuous new discoveries humble me in so many ways. He teaches me how important the small things are.
I told Reef that “when I close my eyes, I see and hear happiness and family and friends…and love.” And I do. And I didn’t ask for any of it. But God blesses me anyway.
There is a reason for everything and things always sort themselves out to reveal beauty. And yes bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people and the outcome is not always as beautiful as we wish it, but there is always love in the end. You guys prove that to me…every…single…day.
So, thank you!
