Gone for a While

Friends, I haven’t been keeping up with blogs this week and probably won’t get back to it for a while.  My very, very dear friend’s 14-year old son was hit by a car while he was bicycling home from school on Wednesday.  Tom is a great kid with a big heart, and he is fighting for his life in intensive care right now.  My world has been reduced to staring at my phone, waiting for updates on Facebook and pacing my house.  I am sleep-walking through work, I shuffled through my race yesterday and I am struggling to keep my fears from affecting my kids.  All the while thinking to myself how much worse it is for my wonderful friend.  I truly appreciate – because I know how thoughtful and kind you all are – the moment you’ve just spent sending healing thoughts to Tom.  Thank you.
