Did you know that Heaven is very green and rocky?

Four years ago my family spent two weeks in heaven.  You may know it by its earthly name, IRELAND, but we know it is really heaven.  In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I invite you to travel back there with me by revisiting 15 posts from my old blog.  Relax, take your time, and enjoy your visit!

How to become a bathing beauty in 12 easy steps

I have a tutorial to offer you today, and the lovely and talented Haley has graciously agreed to serve as our instructor.

We begin with Step 1:  Relax and just be your natural, fabulously beautiful self.

Steps 2-5:  Gradually move toward the water, playfully drawing ever nearer.

Steps 6-10:  Casually step/kneel/sit in the water, gasp at how shockingly cold it is, and then just GO FOR IT.

Steps 11-12:  Laugh because you not only have survived hypothermia but also somehow look even more radiant than before.

Easy as pie!  Who’s next?

Exactly the person I was hoping would step up. See you soon!

How long?

Since last Thursday I’ve been down with the flu.  It took me a few days to fully realize it was the honest-to-goodness flu, probably because I was aimlessly staggering from bed to couch to bed in a world that felt like this:

But then today, Day 5, this happened:

This development has been good, in that I’m beginning to make sense out of my world again and find tiny reasons to hope for better things to come.

It has also been startling to my nervous system — things seem to keep popping out of the fuzzy background and shaking me awake. I wonder how and when I will ever function somewhat normally again.

And now my arms are exhausted from typing.

Praying for your restoration to the land of the living! You are MISSED!
