    This is a funny post, but it’s true.

    I had the same conversation a few years back with my ultimate enemy. The guy was awful. I called him E.T. (evil Tom). He called me all sorts of other things. He had three teenage daughters who were the best, most loving kids I’ve ever met. I had to have a sit down with him, and bury the hatchet because a guy as bad as I thought he was couldn’t raise kids like that.

    Great reminder to be people of grace to a world with pain. I too need this reminder at times when someone is doing a goofy transaction in the line at Costco! ?

    I have had more random conversations with people in the last year of having a kid, and even more so in the last few months as her jubilant love and interest in each and every person she passes becomes more obvious.

    My own instincts, like Michael’s, are often to shut myself up in the house and avoid people. I see my daughter brighten people’s day, and the seemingly random affection that others will shower on her, and I see a little glimpse of the world, the way it should be… the one we lost, and will one day have again.

    It’s a beautiful sight, and one that I wish I was personally more active in. 🙂

    I’m still waiting for Amazon to deliver haircuts and shaves.

    Thanks for standing a post in your cave.
    Reclusive you may be but disengaged you are not.

    Thank you, BD…
    I’m not nice, but I have been redeemed. 🙂

    So did that cure over in Germany prove to be successful in the treatment of Lyme disease in Trey?

    We’re six weeks into a 12 week program.
    Trey’s big brother Jonny is feeling better than he has in many years…he is still in pain, but other symptoms are much improved.
    He is very encouraged.

    Trey is harder to assess as his symptoms are much different from Jonnys.
    We are encouraged that he has put on weight and appears to be growing…he was quite under weight and size for his age.

    His mom thinks both are progressing well…and we still have a ways to go.

    “Reclusive you may be but disengaged you are not.” Such a Yoda quote. 🙂
