So many things going on in our lives right now, there should be something to post about, right? I have had a hard time doing this, though, because my two big sisters have closed their Xanga accounts and I miss them. We all said we could email as easily as Xanga, but I knew we probably wouldn’t as much. At least not the content we write about here. It’s just so fun to write in story form, with illustrations, and although they were just about the only ones who commented on my site, I loved it.
There’s a line in “You’ve Got Mail” that says, “The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.” That’s how I feel about Xanga and the commenting back and forth, especially with my Sisters.
Because they are several years older than I, there is much about who they are that I don’t know. I have really learned so much about both of them through these posts and comments. Not only mine and theirs, but their comments on other’s posts as well. And even though some of what I learn may not be what I expected or even what I wanted to hear, I am so grateful to learn more of their hearts and minds, and knowing them more causes me to love them even more.
Today could easily be a “Jonah” day for me – I don’t feel my best, I miss my sisters, and I really miss Pamela. But I read Micah’s post about, among other things, God’s answered prayers and I was encouraged and reminded of all I have to be thankful for. There can be no “Jonah” days when I see how mightily God has blessed me!
One of the many Blessings in my life!

May we all see the blessings of God in our lives today!
