Like the gentle rain now falling on our dry autumn forest, the grace of friendship renewed my life this morning.
I turned on the computer to find heartfelt comments from former students and other Facebook friends to my previous post "fear." For a while the waterworks inside rivaled those outside. This momentarily dismayed my husband, who like most men, just doesn't understand that women cry when they are happy as much or more than when they are sad.
Moreover, I was reminded once again, by the comments here on the blog and on Facebook, of the grace of others with much greater burdens to bear than I have, who take the time to support a friend.
