Somehow I always seem to move to a new place just before a major life a event. We moved to Knoxville, then got engaged. We moved to Virginia, then got pregnant. So, since I’m about 6-12 hours away from many of my nearest and dearest, I didn’t expect to have a Baby Shower. But…we managed to meet up at Wimbo’s parents cabin in Hendersonville, North Carolina over the weekend. I knew that it would a challenge for friends and family to gather in one place because everyone had to travel. But…I’m so thankful. My mom and dad came, and so did some friends from Knoxville and college. I cried a lot and felt very loved.
Its been a pleasure, really. I’m sorry that it took me so long to meet you. Really, I don’t know why I resisted for so long. I was making some kind of pointless statement to nobody in particular. I’ll miss the long hours that we shared together. I’m just sad to see it all end.
At a time in my life where I have very few friends close by, you and your friends have provided great company for me.
Also, thank you for dedicating your last book to me, I really appreciate it.
I thought that you were going to die in the end. And you did, but not in the way I expected.
I just really don’t get what all that drama and discord was/is about over you, your world, and your books. You teach us that good conquers evil, and that selfless, sacrificial love conquers all. Sounds like Jesus to me.
Definition: A profound concern for the welfare of another without any desire to control that other, to be thanked by that other, or to enjoy the process.
I came across this definition of love in Madeleine L’Engle’s book. She credits Edward Nason West with the definition. I’ve been thinking about it ever since I read it.
