Hello World!

Wow. It's been such a long time, or at least it seems like such a long time, since I've written on here and with the lengthiness of my absence, you would think I'd have a lot to say. And I do....
Unfortunately, my time is short and though my minutes are brief, please know that I haven't forgotten all of you who have become a part of my daily thoughts.

This summer has been challenging. I'm up at 5:00 a.m. and here at the school at 6:00. We work 10 hour days so we can have Fridays off (YES). It hasn't been the most pleasant few weeks, and it is hot, hard work. But....each day still brings a kind of joy and how thankful I am to be able to work. Though the days are long, I am blessed to work with a group of fun women who make the hours more bearable and who don't take themselves too seriously in this summer madness!

I do miss checking in with all of you, seeing what is going on in your lives and reading your blogs. My online time is rare, so I try to catch one or two people each time I'm here. I haven't forgotten your friendship and support and promise....PROMISE that I will be back to writing. Until then, to Bonnie, Mellissa, Mike, Clew, Martie, Naive, Cheryl, Pete, Rebecca, Network Chic, Alan, SRP, Nelly, Jacqueline...to anyone I've forgotten, and everyone who may read here, I send my fondest thoughts and wishes of health and happiness to you all and look forward to catching up on a daily basis again.

'Til we meet again....

Good to hear from you, Lori! Well, at least you have Fridays off! I'll be gone for a few weeks myself--My Boy & I leave for vacation Wednesday. Hope all is well in your world except for too much work and no PC. Gotta fix that.

Oh Lori I am soooo glad to hear from you! I miss you girl!

I, like Cheryl, am leaving on Wednesday for a trip to Kentucky to finally meet our 5 1/2 month old grandson for the first time. I'll be back late Saturday though, so not as long as Cheryl.

Take care, am thinking of you, and hope you can get a computer soon to write on a more regular basis.

HUGS!!

I still check every day knowing that eventually I will find another of your thoughtful and touching posts. It is so nice to have co-workers of like minds and hearts, makes the day go so much better.

My Nyssa has been the busy one. She was off to a REAL camping trip with her Geology class to Hawaii (no hotels here), then a five week summer session of physics, and now she is down in Mississippi for three weeks doing volunteer clean up, hammering, or whatever they need.

Take care of yourself and that beautiful family and come back as soon as you can. We'll still be here.

I am so glad things are going well for you. I haven't been the most prolific blogger lately, but it's comforting to know that the connections are still there. It's funny that no matter how much time passes, those connections are still a source of strength when life throws those curveballs. (Sorry, summer -- baseball imagery seeps into everything.)

Hope you and your family had a fantastic fourth of July. Miss ya.

Oh I'm so happy you are stopping back in even if it's just for a moment. You know I come here every day just to see if you passed by...and lucky me, today you did. When you have more time, take a deep breath and fill us in on more of the beautifulness of your family. :-)

Hey Lori! I'm making my way back too. I've missed you, my friend!

Lori, thank you for leaving a comment at my blog. If you check back in (today is July 10), would you please try to email me if you can? I need to send you a Permissions Form for the anecdote you contributed for the upcoming book. I also need your mailing address.

I'll need to send the form out within the next 2 weeks if possible, so I'll watch for an email. Thanks! I hope you're well. It'll be nice when you can get back to posting again. Enjoy your summer1

Popped in today just to check and am delightfully happy to read you even though briefly! Miss you very much, dear Lori. Take care and God bless!
