There are guests in the house, missionaries who are on a year-long trip around the US doing fundraising before they can move to Afghanistan. And with people in the house, I cannot do what I like to do at night as I wind down: Pop in a movie while multi-tasking on my computer. I don't want to wake them up since they have a long day ahead of them tomorrow. So I took the time to do something I haven't done in a while: Catch up on friends' and friends-of-friends' blogs.
I always enjoy seeing what others are up to, or learning what I can from fellow writer friends. Which took me to Mike's blog. He's a friend's brother, and a gifted writer. I discovered a eulogy he had written to his boy. Take time to read it, if you will.
