I just want to take a second to say 'thank you' to all of you who have recently called Shaun or I just to see how we're doing or filled our mailbox with kind cards or stopped me in the halls at church to give me a hug or emailed me sweet words of truth and sympathy. Everything has felt a little bit bleak lately, and your encouragement feels like a warm blanket wrapped around us on a cold, winter night. When my vision for the future has become especially dim over the past week, I have re-opened many of those kind notes and read them again. Thank you. What a gift!
