Grace is what I need right now. This is a lovely card sent to me by a dear, dear woman I met in New Zealand, Ailsa, neighbor of dear, sweet Wendy. I was moved by the beauty of it, the soft silk/satin fabric, the simple word, Grace inserted behind the ribbon.
Tomorrow I leave for England. This is not the trip to England I thought I would take someday. My dear friend Lynn, the woman I've know for 0ver 40 years, her husband died Friday, doing what he loved - playing soccer (football to those in the UK). My first reaction when I heard the news was, I have to go, there was no question in my mind or my heart. So I am. I will carry Grace with me and strong shoulders, a loving heart and wide open arms.
