A Thought for Amy
I just wanted to take a moment of silence and quiet for Amy, who lost her mother this past weekend. Amy was one of the very first people to visit my blog, right after I started it, and she came up with the idea of the famous Truffle Contest, and she has been an amazing support and presence from very nearly day one.
As many of you know, I lost my father this year, as well, and all the words of sympathy that came in are why I also know that many of the people who visit this blog have also lost one or both of their parents or someone else very close to them. So…this maybe goes out to all of us. Because I think every time we hear something like this, we all hurt again. But it goes out extra-specially for Amy, and her sister Jill, and all their family, whose hurt is very fresh.
