It's cloudy today and windy - just like spring. It's supposed to rain buckets tomorrow but that didn't stop me from splashing just a bit of water at the maids' feet anyway. They make my heart glad.
And so do you. The outpouring of kindness and... well, the entire response I got from yesterday's news... is overwhelming. My Blackberry's nearly exploded with your comments, email and text messages, and it all has continued today. Thank you. Thanks to you all. If you emailed with a specific request or question, I'd appreciate heaps of patience as I begin to sift through all this and get back to everyone.
I loved what many of you wrote about turning 30. Being in your 30s. Thank you for that encouragement. I'm praying for a beautiful and calm decade. I'm longing to trade a messy, thrilling existence in for a beautiful, calm one. A girl can hope, anyway, can't she? This morning I pinned this quote to my mirror:
Faith has to do with things that are not seen
and hope with things that are not at hand.
-St. Thomas Aquinas
So here's to you. And here's to things that are not yet at hand.
Keep those email addresses coming here. I'd hate for you to miss the May newsletter....
