I am a friend to everyone who fears you, to anyone who obeys your orders. ~Psalm 119:63
Mary's birthday is today. Her sister, Jeni, who is now a good friend, is getting married next week. Mary's kids are flying to New York today for the wedding so they can be up in the sky close to heaven on their mommy's birthday.
Jeni is just as good of a friend as Mary was. I have been struggling, and was away for a while, but Jeni kept in touch with me, sent me cards and support. I am so grateful for her and am truly happy for her upcoming wedding.
I am also grateful for all my other friends and family who wrote me, called or sent worried e-mails to me (I finally weeded through all of them). To be loved is a great feeling, and showing love is even better. Friends stick by each other through good times and bad. I am lucky to have so many friends who care.

I'm back! Thanks to all of you for the e-mails (I had over 450 when I got back yesterday). It's good to know I was missed. I took a month-long sabbatical to renew and refresh my spirit. I also did some research and am working on a new book. I will post a longer blog later after I get caught up, but I wanted to let you know I am okay. Thanks again for the care and concern, my friends! What's up with you?
