TO MY VALENTINES
You know who you are, all the lovely loved ones in my life, and today is my day to celebrate you before the New Year gets any older! Sending cards at the traditional time continues to be an elusive, though admirable, goal; doesn’t stop me from doing what I can when I can. So I hope there is much joy in your lives, as a balance to the personal and world wide challenges we all face. It would be easy to
give up on the crazy old world we live in, but I am heartened by a hymn I know: “Ours is no caravan of despair, come, yet again, come.”
It is almost four years since E.D. died, and thoughts of you still sustain me. As do visits. The Wilsons in MI, the Martins in NY, Ann and Neil in MA and Susan, Dave’s family and Elizabeth in NC all welcomed me for the hot months I avoid here in Tampa. And in the winter I look forward to reciprocating.
