All over my blog community, people are encountering huge obstacles in their geographical communities: floods on their property. Untimely, unexpected death in the family. Troubles of other kinds.
How I wish I lived close to you all--I would be happy to wash dishes, shovel crap, launder blankets, and bring over some soup and coffeecake. In the meantime, you have my thoughts and best wishes, my hopes for good outcomes and relief from the tragedies. Keep me posted when you can. Until then, just know the candles are lit, on the tile table next to my red wall, for you all.
