Thank you for praying for me. The morning went…well. I did spend most of the ride home (from MOPS) feeling deflated and discouraged, but my reason was petty. In the last couple hours, I’ve gotten over myself. Whew, that’s a relief. God answered all (but one) of my prayers (and I was just focusing on the one He didn‘t answer), and I know He blessed a lot of women through the words He gave me. And I have a feeling a few husbands are going to be a little happier this week as well.

Anywho. (Anyhoo?)

So, let me clear up the Mitch Hedberg thing. I do think he’s funny. Side-splittingly funny at times even. Some of his stuff just killed me. Okay, bad word choice. No, I didn’t know he died. Neither did Gabe. He was bummed when I told him. His humor and tone of voice take a minute (or 12) to get used to, but then he’s quite a hoot. A nice change of pace from a lot of other comedians who all sound the same. Actually I don’t listen to many, because it’s hard for me to get past the language and inappropriate humor. That’s why I love Brian Regan.

Gabe and Nina and I took a walk through the woods after lunch. The weather is gorgeous. I kept closing my eyes to soak in the loveliness of each moment. I nearly fell asleep walking a few times.

Did you hear about the 7-year-old boy who broke into a zoo in Sydney, Australia and fed a bunch of small animals to a huge crocodile? I’m sad. Not for the animals so much, but for such a little boy to have such huge heart issues already. What must be going on in his mind and soul and life? I hate the curse of sin. (Nixie, you be careful over there in Oz!)

I thought I had some other stuff to say but apparently not. I’m tired. Hope the rest of your day is delightful!

    Glad it went well!!

    Maybe the little boy just made a stupid mistake. Hopefully this isn’t a pattern in his life. Hopefully some good, old fashioned discipline is all he needs.

    That is so incredibly sad about that boy. SO YOUNG. Where are his parents?

    Sorry, I didn’t get your post until now…I started praying for you thinking you were talking today…and then realized in the middle of my prayer…your speaking engagement was WAY over. I meant well. 🙁

    I don’t want to be fed to crocodiles 🙁

    You are right though, what must be going on that little ones heart to do something so awful – I did hear about that on the news, not sure which zoo it was though!

    Glad your talk went well.  I find it easy to focus on that “one thing” instead of rejocing about how God came through in some many other ways.  I laughed out loud at your solution… I’m going to remember that for the next time my focus is wrong & get over myself!

    ^^ I totally get what she is saying. And I agree. And I think you are great. And I am glad this morning went well. And I pray God still answers your one prayer in a way you weren’t expecting that knocks your socks off. And I miss you. And are you sick of me yet

    I vote for “anywho.”

    and i think it’s okay that you think the comedian isn’t all that funny even thought he’s no longer among the living.  just like i’m okay with not being a massive rich mullins fan even though he’s gone. (klove really plays him (rich, not mitch) up & almost idolizes him and–well—it’s a pet peeve of mine-this pedestooling of people who have died.)  hum. random.  but.  it’s what i thought of.

    Oh your walk sounds fantastic!  I’m loving this glorious fall weather too!!

    That’s pretty wild about that zoo in Australia – so sad!  Wow- and the boy was so young too.
