[Prayers please!] As some of you know, Katie has been going through a rough patch. She left a note and took off last night. We must find her and bring her safely home. Please let me know if you see her. In any case, please pray for her -- and us. We are so worried. Thanks, friends.
How appropriate. I heard "Yesterday" by the Beatles and went to go play it on the piano coz it's easy and fun to play!....Oops, the piano is at Bill's house. Sigh. (I knew I would miss the piano.) Come on, laugh with me.
So the strangest thing just happened. At the bus stop this am we saw the three young deer we always see and commented on them. As we were watching them, a car hit one on the road. Didn't even stop. The poor little thing bolted over to us and we stood there watching the life kick out of her while blood poured from her head. Ugh. I can still hear her hooves clattering on the street. Disturbing. Willie is my calm boy. I was fussing and saying, "what can we do? etc." he said simply, "Mom, get back in the car. I'll take care of it." and he dragged her off the road. He pulled his phone out. Just then the bus drove up. I'm sitting here thinking I didn't remind him to wash his hands when he gets to school, though I'm sure he'll be fine. Not sure which was more impressive: the deer's violent death or Willie's composure. I'm blessed with a good son.
