A momentary service disruption

Two years ago today, my father died. One year ago today, my baby was born. I will blog more today, but I am caught between remembering and processing these two things. It's a bit of magical story, and I'll tell it a little later. But for right now, I'm just going to think. And remember.

Take your time. We'll be waiting to hear the magic when you're ready.

Enjoy your morning in deep thought. I am listening to your wedding CD right now, so I am thinking of you!

Thanks for the heads up on the new look of your blog. I am one of those Firefox users, so I was a little confused at the new look. I just opened it in Explorer, and now I get it. :)

I am sending my husband a care package today, and I'm sending him the fudge you made! Well, whats left of it anyway. I thought you might find it interesting that the fudge you made will make it all the way back to your home state this week. :) He's in Shreveport for three more weeks.

Allen's father's funeral was the same day as David's birth. David picked up his chin on the way to earth. xoxo

Nancy said...

His grandfather's chin...that is.
Did you know that Grandpa was deaf too?

You know I cannot imagine anything better to replace a day that would normally evoke pain than to have a child--proof that life and your father's legacy continues. Can't wait to read what comes next

Sounds like a great day for pondering. And happy birthday to the little one. :)

I am sending hugs to all of you.
Love you
