I have lost my words...

Hi all. Thanks for your sweet comments. I'm sorry once again for the lapse in my postings. I don't know how long it will take me to get back into the groove again... it's not even that things are so difficult or terrible right now... It mostly seems that I have run out of words. I know that's hard to imagine coming from me! But it's true. Even, and probably especially, in person - I simply have nothing to say. I am definitely wordier in writing than verbally (even on my good days) and for the moment I am just drawing a blank. So - I wanted to let you know that we are doing o.k. I think I'm totally exhausted from the long past months. I have also realized that a huge part of those months was the constant communication - with doctors, with Ellie, with each other, on the blog - and for the moment I am done communicating all together. So rather than just saying nothing, I thought that I would tell you that I am on hiatus from the written and spoken word. Nothing personal. It's where I'm at right now. Love you all!

To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun....
a time to keep silent and a time to speak..

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Continuing to pray for you, John, Ethan and your families.

I so totally understand the word exhaustion. I'm better in writing than in person any day - but with the turmoil of the past year you are in a time of rest. As long as we know you are OK - thanks for the sweet message to me - I actually got my hair cut on Tuesday and used your picture as a guide! So you inspire even without words! take care of yourself and your beautiful family. As always - thank you for letting us know where you are - whether physically or emotionally or both.
