Thank you, thank you to everyone who kindly left comments for me offering support and prayers for Bob’s aunt, who, I found out, did pass away earlier today.

I used to hesitate to ask for prayers through my blog or my Twitter and Facebook feeds. But today was proof as to why I have stopped hesitated and just started asking. Those comments saying that people were praying, expressing support, sending encouragement…those comments buoyed me on a day when I couldn’t be where my heart was, on a day when all I could do was join you in praying.

And to think, my plan for blogging today was to review that new Harry Potter movie — you know, the one we stayed up all night to watch. Well, another day for that. Prayers for today…and gratitude for the friends and readers and pray-ers who join us in that.
