Expect to have hope rekindled.

Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways.

The dry seasons in life do not last.

The spring rains will come again.

Feeling so emotional and teary today.

My little sister’s friend was killed in an accident.

17, a twin, four days before graduation.

A pregnant woman died in an accident on the road near our house the same day.

My boy has a severe toothache and hasn’t slept well for a week.

Just all these things piling up, and squeezing out a well of tears.

I know this feeling will pass, and gradually it is…

but I just feel so emotional, sad, and just the teensiest bit lost.

And that’s okay.

There is still immense caverns of beauty in this world:~

a yummy lunch with lush Lile, dearest Deb and sublime, pregnacious Sally.

Sally grabbed my hand, planting it on my tummy, as the little human bean growing in her kicked… amazing!
