thank you

Thank you, friends, for your emails, cards, comments, thoughts and prayers. It's been an unusual week, and one that surprised me with how good it was, good in that deep-down way, like that moment after you've been crying and then you laugh---a much deeper-down kind of laugh than usual---that kind of good.

I've written a lot about this past week, but that's not what we've decided to use this blog for.

But among the things that have made this an amazing week is this: though much of it has been about mourning our loss and much of it has been about celebrating her life, the strongest refrain this week has been about celebrating the life that we are to inherit in Christ, which Mom has seized a foretaste of ahead of us.

Peace be to you from the one who was, who is and who is to come---even so, Lord Jesus, quickly come.
