Namaste

Both Andrew and I wanted to thank you guys for all your support. The last week has been very frustrating. Especially since baseball equals life in our family. This picture breaks my heart. Where is the little guy who was in the NICU with tubes running from his body and monitors beeping all around. Scared to death something was wrong. He's gone. I am now having to look up into his eyes. Long and lanky. When did his voice start to sound like his dad's? When did all this happen? Where did the time go?
Will was just as frustrated as Drew. What do you mean Drew can't practice? That's his brother, his twin, each other's wing man when they get older.

There are a couple things I wanted to touch on.

Pie Day made me happy. It is good to know there are good people out there who took an interest in each other. I was reading every blog and looking at their comments. I thought it was wonderful that each of you took the time to comment on each others blogs. The world is a good place.

I read some blogs because they soothe me. I don't even leave a comment because I'm afraid even the name evil chef mom screams too loud. If you have a chance please read shining egg's post about the blogging community and how we are all neighbors. I was trying to write something like her post to say thank you for participating in pie day. I gave up after reading her post. She did it so much better. Even though she doesn't really know who I am. Thank You.

Thank you to M. who left a private email about something she went through and what a franklin is. She affirms that while the internet is a huge and ever growing world. We can all reach out, lend a hand, and make contact.

I wanted to also say thanks to mayberry magpie. For all sorts of reasons. First, that she thought one of my photos could accompany a six word memoir of her life. I'm flabbergasted that anyone would think of something I did could relate to them. Second, she gives me hope that there are good people and good places in this world. Places where you could go jogging at night, places where kids could walk home in the dark on brick lined streets. Joan, your post about the pink door inspired me to take the time and really look around. To notice, to slow down. I have been running so much that I forgot some things.

For the next two weeks I will be posting pictures on my photo blog of home. My sanctuary.

Krysta, thanks for hosting Pi day, we had so much fun. The best part was being able to connect with other Pi makers who participated. Don't know why we never joined in anything like this before. It won't be our last, it's just the begging.
What other event do you have planned? Sign us up, we're in!

I also had a great pi day. I loved going to other people's blogs to see what they had going on. It was 20x more fun than I thought it would be.
(and even though my pie wasn't that great, I was glad I pulled one out at the last minute!)

Oh, man, you made me tear up. Your words are . . . oh so kind and oh so appreciated.

You know what I've learned from this blogging thing? That even though I love my little town and think it and the people in it are special -- they're really everywhere. I learn about them everyday in the comments people leave, and I learn about them everyday in places like your blog.

And thanks so much for sharing shining egg's post. You're right. She said it so eloquently.
