Hope to be in contact later...

I will write again some day.


In the meantime, we've encountered a serious family illness that I do not yet have permission to discuss.  No, it is not AIDS... don't worry.

Little Schubert had a tumor removed and biopsied, but yesterday we found out that it's benign, so that's good.

I got a job teaching English at the local private Christian school.  This may signal the end of my blogging days.  My kids tell me that teachers can't have blogs.  At least, not this type of blog.  Teachers can have teacher blogs and post assignments and all that jazz.  Teachers can't core dump their deep feelings on-line, though.  Yes, it makes sense.

Jonathan has pneumonia.  (He is not the one with the illness I'm calling serious.  He has a Z-pack that he will finish on Saturday.)

Shawn is in the process of moving Laura back to college, and I needed to stay home to prepare for other things.

And that's just the big stuff.  Well, most of the big stuff.

So, there is a lot to do, and a lot to pray about.

If you are up for praying, please pray particularly for Jonathan on Friday and Saturday.  Also, please pray for my sick family member who will undergo a third surgery on 8-17-12.

Thank you.

I'm really sad about your not blogging......but glad to know that you will be teaching.....meanwhile I am praying for Jonathan AND the other surgery tomorrow. I have loved feeling in touch with Anoka when I have followed you. Son Stan, grandson Ryan and I spent 3 hours with son Phil/Margie (in their Andover home) last Saturday. Love, Pauline

I'm so sorry that your family has been experiencing illness. I was worried that something was wrong since you had not blogged in a while. May your loved one experience complete and rapid healing.
I know you have been thinking about a teaching job for a while. I hope that it turns out to be just what you were looking for and a source of great satisfaction. Selfishly, I am sad to see you go. As you know, I have related closely to many things you have expressed here in the years I have been reading.
I wish you all the best in your new ventures, Ruth. Thank you for your transparency here on your blog.

Many blessings,
"Hope T."
