on the way to posting my usual drivel, life happened

when i say life, i mean post-fall-life. it seems that a very good friend of mine, karen, has become very sick. she first got sick a while ago, then seemed to get better for a while. then she got sick again right before i came home for spring break. now it's hitting her harder than ever, and i'm not there to visit. that is hard. pain is so real, and it always makes me want to take stock and be grateful and all of those other cliches. but joy is real too. and that's harder to see. anyway, i'm going to make a phone call now. i know this hasn't been much, but it's been something. pray for karen and her family and her church and me and you and the world. i think that covers it.
