#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Sure enough

A big part of today’s blog got sucked into the black hole of cyberspace.

Errrrgh!  This is a brand new computer, so I’m blaming the internet itself.

To recap what I wrote before, my great-nephew, Gibson, is doing well.  I think he’s still in the hospital, but he’s been gaining weight steadily and is breathing on his own.  His parents are devoted, spending lots of time with him.

I finished THE TALIBAN CRICKET CLUB, the novel I mentioned previously.  It was sobering, but very, very good.  I then started THE KABUL BEAUTY SCHOOL, a memoir, and I’m enjoying that, too.

Tomorrow is Weight Watchers day–I’ll update you when I get home from the meeting.

Those are the highlights.  :)

Here’s hoping this entry doesn’t get swallowed.

    I’m glad your great nephew is continuing to improve.

    You were mentioning what you’d planned to do…well you should have seen what I had planned to do today, but nothing went like it was planned.

    Not only did NOTHING go as planned, my mower tore up. I can’t understand why, as I’ve only been using it since 1978, or 1979. You’d have thought I could have gotten some use out of it before it tore up, :-D , to the tune of one hundred and that is if nothing else is wrong.

    Then, a neighbor next to where my old house sits came down when I was cutting grass…before the mower tore up, and told me his wife died sometime through the night on Friday. She was such a sweet lady and not that old.

    And, my brother read on Facebook, of all places, that our aunt’s husband died. And, I was moaning about my plans and mower.

    God has His reasons and I sure don’t understand them, but I’m thankful I and my loved ones are still alive. Say a prayer for my aunt and neighbor, please.

    I’m glad you’re feeling so much better.

      So true. He has “skin time” with his mommy and daddy everyday. The pictures of him resting on his daddy’s hairy chest move me nearly to tears.

    I think we all have problems with things getting lost in cyber space and sometimes they even show back up. So glad you nephew is doing well.

      How right you are. You used to go in, pay a bill, get a receipt, leave. Now, you pay a bill, after they get the computer ready to go, wait forever for a receipt, and what used to be a 5 minute transaction now takes what seems like forever.

      But, if it wasn’t for those same computers, we wouldn’t have met all the nice people on Linda’s Blog.

      So, I guess it is a trade-off.

    Glad the baby is doing so well. Sorry your having trouble with your bolgs not going through. That seem to happen to me on Facebook sometimes.
    Was wondering about the books you mentioned, are they both by the same author? They sound interesting. I did enjoy The Marriage Pact and will look forward to the next one.
    Blessings.

    Little Gib has a great angel perched over his bed. I’m so happy
    he’s making progress. And blessings to his parents, too.
    Keep going with that new book. Looking forward to it.

    It’s so good to hear that your great nephew Gibson is doing so well. I know that this may be a stupid question but are you all singing songs, reading books, and nursery rhymes to him? I know that you all are. Hang in there with the weight watchers!
