From the Star

I remember in high school English having to write my own obituary, last Thursday I wrote one for my son - today it was in the Indy Star .... I am not sure if my English teacher would approve or what grade I might receive, but it seems like everything that we learn regarding rules flies out the window when life really happens.

This morning Aaron and I slept late (8am!) I went over to use my sisters treadmill, only walked for about 25 min (very slow). Then dear friends picked us up and we went to the movies - we saw "Yes Man" nothing like the physical comedy of Jim Carey to make you laugh. Laughing feels good. We will lay low the rest of the day, watch some football and prepare for tomorrow.

I thought of you all day today. I saw Jeremy's obituary in the paper today and cut it out.

I'm glad you got to get out today and have a little fun. Lots of love and prayers coming your way :)
