It's been more than a week of days since I have felt like there has been a possibilty of stringing a few thoughts together, but now... the words are stirring again. Hearts have been praying, and it seems that the thick veil of exhaustion has lifted some. I am thankful. I suppose knowing things are going to be okay and the actual road of getting there are two completely different things... and sorting out the differences make me weary. But there is less pain and more living... and the promise of an update tomorrow. Any news is better than no news.
Fall has come, and with it, fresh air. For deep breathing. For cheering. For laughing. Yes, there has been some of each. Again, I am thankful. The breeze circles 'round us and we think outloud that perhaps this is the best season of the year. But the next, and the next after that will come, each with its own glory and gifts... and it too will be the best season of the year. And it makes me smile... to know that the best is still just around the bend.
