I see your names here, your little avatars, and I can't help but think that I have literally a worldful of friends.

Thank you for all the kind words. I am beyond grateful and uplifted by them. I know I haven't been around much lately, but I think all the time I was here in the past was a good investment.

My older son created this video when he got in tonight. I hope you'll enjoy it. Thanks again for all your words of encouragement, and especially for your prayers.
