Did you hear the doxology ringing loudly and out of tune in your ears? That is me, thrilled to death to be "caught up" with the blog. I have really hated being away from it and then trying to play catch up. I feel I have lost some memories that I would have loved to have saved. My memory is so bad right now. I love to record little things here that I want to hold on to. Mostly, their little sayings, ways they are pronouncing words. Their language is developing so quickly right now. I am upset with myself that I have not been documenting their language growth.
We have a wonderful pastor at the church we attend. She preached a sermon a few weeks back on the difference between the vulture and the hummingbird. The vulture eats what is dead, what is past. The hummingbird eats what is alive, beautiful, now. H and I have talked several times about those images and what an important notion that is to hold on to.
So, we must not look back. What is done is done. Or, in this case, what is not done is not done. I hope to stay current and also dive deeper as I move forward. I appreciate the 2.7 readers who stuck with us through this sparse and shallow valley.
