It Was Time


Tonight we had MIke over for dinner. Bart had seen him several times over the the last few weeks and he was doing so well that we felt it was time for him to come spend some time with the family. He is so settled. Has reliable housing. Is chemical free. Looks very good.

Plus we wanted to celebrate the publication of the book, so Bart made lasagna at Mike's request. Salinda and her boyfriend, Henry, came for a few days. John called from jail today, anticipating his discharge on Monday, and I called Kyle tonight just so I could say that I talked to all my kids.

My heart is full, my future is bright, my to do list is long, and everything is OK in my world. And I'll enjoy it for this moment. Until it all changes once again.

OH, what nice news to read! Mike looks good. Please set a book aside for me. I'll pick it up when I get home from Alaska.
