Today is a sad day in the Armstrong family. We are losing a member of the family. I’m sitting here at my desk, feeling guilty for complaining about the cost of “extraordinary measures” to treat Ellie and sick that the girls are clueless at this point that this is the end for their beloved Ellie. I have to admit that I do love the little chick! She has stolen the hearts of all of us…
Lynn called me this morning on the way to work and I could hear the struggle to maintain composure in his voice. Of all of us, I’m afraid that big man will be the most heartbroken. We teased him unmercifully about his devotion to that little girl (dog). He broke down and cried. There will be much weeping and gnashing of teeth about 4:00pm today….so if you happen to look at the clock and notice it is near that hour, say a prayer for us, this will be a difficult day.

"About you"? It is hard to declare any one thing or even a few things that would be of any interest to anyone! I love God. I know that I am His child, and I waver between being totally overwhelmed with His love, grace and mercy in my life, to being overwhelmed with how fast life is passing and how bad a job I have done at living this life He has given me. I often wonder if anyone else is out there walking around trying to act normal (which, if I may insert here, is really a relative term to everyone...what is normal?). About me? I am complicated! I love God with all my heart and want to serve Him with all my heart and want to do something important with all my heart and yet, this life I live everyday, doesn't seem to line up with that. More than anything - I want to be a published writer. I want to have the time to go to places that are surrounded by the sound of crashing waves and breezes and just listen. Or, to sit on a deck of some remote cabin and listen to the whisper of God's voice in the trees. I wonder.....I wonder if those moments will ever come?
