My dear friends, I am so completely overwhelmed. Last night I received in the mail a most wonderful gift. I’ve never been very god at thank yous, either in person or in writing. I’m torn between the desire to say something as quickly as possible and to delay and delay and delay while hunting for words that are adequate to express the profound awe and gratitude I feel at your generosity. But there really are no words that will even come close.
And so all I can say is a humble thank you. Thank you to Amy Welborn and Danielle Bean for organizing and taking up this collection on my behalf. And thank you to everyone who responded to their invitation with such generosity. I wish I could thank each of you individually.
I will write more later when I have decided how I will use your beautiful gift. For now, I am still contemplating all the wonderful possibilities.
God bless you all, my dear, dear friends. You are all remembered in my prayers.
