It's been a while-- my laptop computer crashed, permanently--so I didn't log on. Over the summer I went in search of a new job situation-- the prior contract had ended. I started a new job that was crazy and then realized I couldn't deal with certain security issues, so my job changed again.
In the middle of all this was another story, that I will need to tell more about on another day, that centers around the pregnancy, life, and stillbirth of my second child-- it's so stark here on the screen and yet I can't quite bring myself to write about it at length. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger-- I haven't gotten there yet-- they also say that everything gets used in one's writing-- I'm randomly pressing to get anything on paper and that is bland-- but this too shall pass, right? In it all, God has been so present, available. I've been surprised and gladdened and honored by the family and friends we have around us.
Here's to a good 2011-- so far I've just been trying to recover from 2010 but I've got time. And God is faithful.
