We have amazing friends and family.
My phone has been buzzing constantly.
Texts and calls and emails and facebook posts and tweets.
It is awesome.
And a little overwhelming.
And I appreciate that so many people realize that - almost every call or text or email or message or tweet has included some form of "don't worry about calling me back."
I might not.
Sometimes I answer the phone and sometimes I don't.
I don't always feel like talking. But sometimes I feel like listening.
Many someones have said to me, "you don't have to answer every call."
(And I don't.)
But how do I choose? We have created for ourselves an incredible web of life.
Family who are friends. Friends who are family.
Congregations full of people who simply awe me with their love.
Camps and schools and synagogues and networks and teams.
I want to talk to everyone. (I can't....yet.)
(And that doesn't even get into my not-really-imaginary-friends-I've-never-met-in-real-life-online-friends....who might fit into any one of the categories above too.)
Keep it comin', people. It's the fuel on which we're driving this bus.
Two of our most beloved friends-who-are-family wrote amazing words for us.
Rebecca and Elizabeth, I have no words to respond except to say that I love you both.
