This blogroll on the side of the screen--yeah, all those blogs I regularly read--these writers are special, hilarious, caring, marvelous people. On the days that I don't have much courage to face the chores or the mystery of my own thoughts, I can still read their words and be strengthened.
I've wanted to write about my transition into married life, into parenthood, into becoming the parent of not one, but two special-challenges kids. (Yes, we've noticed that Spark has his own issues.) And I know I will. But today, today, I just need to day that I am thankful for the people who put their love and their truth into the world. I am thankful for those people who do the everyday living and sharing, who keep showing up and keep going on.

Now the snow is here, a blanket for the winter. We've got about 12 inches so far, and more is falling and blowing. It's wet snow, too, perfect for packing and sculpting.
I keep wanting to curl up and sleep some more now, but I did that this morning. I woke up at the regular time and monitored the emails and phones to make sure our business was well and duly closed for the day: phone messages changed, signs up on the front doors, emails sent to all the staff. At least I was able to be in my pajamas and bed all the while. When the flurry of messaging calmed down, I tucked myself back in.
It was after noon when I woke up!
