  1. Your thoughts are very deep, Terry. I would add to all of your “ponderings” the words on a beautiful plaque that one of our best friends gave to us many years ago: “Friends become our chosen family.” That’s so true as well. You are in my daily prayers, right up there with my stepson, dealing with his AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). We sent our Christmas card to your Texas address, but it sounds as though you are gathering in Michigan. I have been praying for all of your family, as there was an obituary for a Nancy Merriman, whose husband was Doug, in last Sunday’s paper. I pray now that she was married to another Doug Merriman. I pray for them now as well as you and your family. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with peace, good health, and love. Hugs!

    • Thanks Wendy! Absolutely, friends become our chosen family; I love that plaque! Unfortunately, Nancy is my sister in law. Thank you for your insight, prayers, and encouragement. Doug is having a tough time because it was so unexpected, but his children were able to be there when it happened and today at the Celebration of Life service. Wes, Debi, and I, along with Deb, have been able to keep in touch and offer support since we all live close enough. And no worries about the card, it’ll be a pleasant read when we get down there later this winter!
