Sorry I haven't posted earlier as well! Spent an absolutely wonderful two weeks with my precious daughter and delighful granddaughter. Colin is so on target (as always!) when he talked about the little things that we all take for granted. Sharing jokes, walks, fixing coffee for each other. Watching tv and holding hands. Let this be a true lesson for all you dear friends. Give your child an extra hug, your spouse and extra kiss. Stop and enjoy each of the "little things" that are so often taken for granted. You truly don't miss them until they are taken away from you. Mechele is doing great! She is not wasting precious and energy with bitterness and hate. Instead she has turned her energies into a positive direction and your support has shown her that we are not alone in our mission to bring her home for good. Things have been crazy here since my return. For those who do not know this, I am a Realtor in south Mississippi. We have finally recovered from Katrina and now are having to deal with this horrible oil spill. If that isn't enough we are at the start of hurricane season and actually have one already in the Gulf. This has been devasting to so many people, espcially our friends in south Louisiana. Please keep these resiliant people in your prayers. Hope to go back to Anchorage beginning of August. I love and value each and every one of you!!
