OK. I really want to get back to blogging. I have let this slip way too long. I like blogging. I think it's good for me. Forces me to put words together in a complete sentence. (Never mind the one I just wrote.) Teehee. All right. It forces me to put words together in a way that people can understand. Below is a photo of my oldest son's birthday celebrations. He turned 27. TWENTY-SEVEN!! Can you believe it.

Hubby Mike is on the far left, then Mike's girlfriend, followed by the birthday boy. On Mike's left is an old friend from grade school and high school who was able to join us. After that-- all siblings. Only my daughter and son-in-law were not there. (Since they live in the Atlanta area.)
Mike does not really like cake so I made him his favorite Dutch Apple Pie.

Where does the time go? I know it's a trite question but every year it takes on a deeper meaning.

Happy Birthday, Mike! You are a son who has brought his parents nothing but joy. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May you continue to live the life that the God who infinitely loves you has planned. God is good. All the time. :-)

It is good to know you are not giving up on the blog. I do enjoy your writing. But I know how easy it is to let it slip and it is important to let go of cyberspace when real life calls. In any case, welcome back and Birthday blessings for your son!

I know all about the burning desire to write while circumstances prevent it.

I have just returned following an absence of a whole year.

I posted a prayer in my sidebar from Henri Nouwen. It's good to read from time to time when we suffer angst regarding whether or not to continue.
Your photos are another mode of communication, and you do the photos so very well.
