"They say this one has a surprise ending."

"Your fantasy will come true."
"You will make exciting holiday plans."

—My two Jones Soda bottle caps from this evening

Community Group was relaxed, quieter now that Sara is gone. John joined us again after a year's absence; Randall came to us from his now-disbanded group. The presence of two bald men made me feel positively...less bald. "Besides," I tell myself, "my receding hairline is dead sexy, in a Bruce Willis sort of way."

Speaking of, I'm winding down to Unbreakable in the background. The story is powerful, with a resonant, somehow comforting chord for me. We are each called to use our gifts faithfully.

Two phone calls today from two precious friends, concerned for my heart. The love they show me is abundant and undeserved. That's the nature of love. I am blessed, and I assured each that I will be OK. I am in good hands. We all are. And perhaps we will all be OK.
