Garrison Keillor, in his collection of short stories entitled Leaving Home, wrote several times in several different wordings, "Thank you God, for this good life and forgive us if we don't love it enough."
After events this week, that quotation has been running around my head, but perhaps a little modified:
Thank you God, for these good friends and forgive us if we don't love them enough.
Daryl, it's so awesome that you're alright--your frienship has been such a blessing to me over the past three years! I am so thankful for each and every one of you, my friends, forgive me if I don't show it as much as I should!
