A Return Journey and a Bit of Housecleaning
After spending a rainy morning in a coffee shop,
gazing at some colorful hermit crabs (that will never cross the threshold of the Urquhart household, much to my children's consternation),
and standing on the sandy fringes of the Atlantic one final time,
we have returned home. And if we weren't quite sure we had neared our destination, we ran into this fella and were instantly convinced that we were, in fact, once again in Lancaster County.
It was on our journey home that I was informed of some somber news. Bev, at the Black Ink Paperie blog (a blog I adore and religiously follow), has recently received the news that everyone fears. Her husband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. You can read the details on her most recent post. And I would admonish you all to visit her blog and give her a word of encouragement in this scary time for their family. But I was also amazed at, and greatly admire, how she ended her post--with a call to kindness. What wisdom to share even when facing the dark of the unknown.
And, by way of a final announcement, we will have a guest writer on Monday that I am ecstatic to have because he is quite the elusive/reclusive figure and difficult to lure into the open. But he will be with us on Monday! Both his pen and his wit are razor sharp, so you will not want to miss it.
Hope you all have a fabulous Father's Day Weekend!
