Well, I have been on a self-imposed break from MDC and it was a good thing... Coincided with a week at the beach (too hot then too raint but relaxing nonetheless).
I have missed you all though!!!
As a result of not coming to the boards at all, I wasn't receiving any messages of new posts to this thread, and was thinking you were all very quiet & I was getting worried, lol. So it was reassuring to come back and settle in last night to catch up on your chat.
I don't even know where to begin responding, so let me just send hugs to each one of you, for the different challenges of these long summer days. Sounds like a lot of movement in everyone's life, of different kinds. Thanks, Cheryl, for the insight into the growing season. Makes a lot fo sense to me. How sad about your bro & sil... hope things work out for all.
(((((Heather)))))) I felt so sad reading about how hard things have been. Sending you positive vibes from here as you transition back into life after the break. Hope the time away will be positive for all the dynamics. Usually is for me. Allows for fresh perspective sometimes.
Karen, you are so close to me -relatively- in CT! Sophie & I go to NY/NJ a lot. And I'll be driving from here to Maine in August I think. Hmmm...
Oh, one other thing related to EB -- a group of women at my church have begun meeting to talk about motherhood, and July's meeting will be discussing Everyday Blessings! I'm excited, though it feels mildly, um, disloyal to you all, lol
I'll let you know how it is!
I'll try to dig back into my book today and see what our next chapter is. Know you have a lot going on now, CL!
hugs to all, anne
