    Peace and grace to you wherever life takes you.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

      That reminded me of that hymn ”Pilgrim Song”. I loved that hymn as a little girl 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. In Texas, in Tuna, in Illinois.

      I’m thankful for your friendship, humor and insights and for a refuge on this sometimes harsh internet.

      Sorry I haven’t been around lately. But I wanted to let you know that I’m thankful for you and your blog. I’d like to be so much more eloquent here, but the words would be hokey if I went much further. I wish there was a way I could open my heart and let you see how you touch me and help me get through some of the craziness of life. But unfortunately I’m confined by the 26 letters of the alphabet and the fact that literally opening my chest and letting you see my heart might make you vomit and pass out.

      Which is definitely not the reaction I would want you to have.

      I was clinically depressed when I thought your site was gone. How would I survive without my daily dose of AM? I’m incredibly thankful that you are back in business.
      I shared your blog on infertility with friends that have struggled with that (as I have). They were very encouraged by your words. The exciting thing is they have gotten TWO daughters in the last 2 months!!! A 5 year old foster/adopt and an 18 month old from Guatemala. Isn’t God good?
