Dark day at our house

Today marks an end and a beginning in our family life.  It's an end to all eight of us being a whole family and a beginning of Staples' life on his own for the most part.  He's off to Louisiana as of 8:10a.m., planning to sleep in his car tonight somewhere around Memphis and roll into Lafayette, LA tomorrow night to be ready for roughneck training on Monday.

Many tears ongoing throughout this morning, but we're proud of his development and determination to earn his way through college.  And we know he is in the best hands possible - those of his loving Savior, Lord and Father.  And he's getting lots of fodder for upcoming books and stories!

Because God cares for each of us, I
