Sweet Wordless Comfort

Tears began rolling down my face.  The talk had briefly turned towards the topic of Ginger on this the two-week anniversary of her death.  My precious 12-year-old niece draped one arm around me & laid her head on my shoulder.  She didn't say a word.  She didn't have to.  Words aren't always necessary to give comfort.

You are so precious . . . and such a great writer! I so greatly appreciate your comment on our blog; thank you for your kind words, and thank you, also, for commenting so that I could have a link to your blog again. I had forgotten what it was. I've got to add you to our sidebar so I can keep up with you guys :) My computer sit downs are infrequent these days, but I'll keep up as best as I can! Love and blessings

Thank you, Katie! You're so sweet! I definitely do not feel worthy of such praise. I wish we'd had more time to get to know y'all in person before y'all moved. We adore your family & will be keeping up with y'all through your blog.
