TDYK – Draft 2 (and 2.5) is done

But this is put squarely in perspective by the continuing illness of our little girl. Nothing life-threatening, and it is a good reminder that she is generally very healthy whereas many, many parents are dealing with chronically and seriously ill children who struggle through most every day with more determination, patience, and resilience than I can even begin to appreciate.

That being said, and not to minimize it in the least but rather to point out my own weakness of character, even Lillian’s relatively minor, transitory illness is enough to remind me that these words I’ve been filling my extra minutes with are just words. The truly important things are the people we touch.

And with draft 2 done, I may be away from the blog for a bit, thinking of other things entirely (with any luck).
