Humbled and challenged

Several writers met in Orlando this morning for fellowship and writin' talk. We met at in the home of a woman who has been blind for 20 years. Ya'll, I could NOT tell. Louise Gouge had to tell us that Jan was blind.

She was bubbly, beautiful and most of all, so self sufficient. I was humbled and challenged. How can I complain about anything in my life when I'm so free to do the things I want because I can see? Jan is hungry to learn about writing and has several published articles and a self published book.

We are going to meet once a month to learn and talk. I might try to get a few writer wannabes from here to go over with me next time.

Oh, we had another attendee, Jan Weaver. She's in her 70's (I guess) was Miss Senior USA in '86. She writes poems and songs, even sang one of her songs about Fathers. It was fabulous.

What a great morning.

Yesterday I played racquetball and went to prayer in the morning and evening. Good day. Good presence of the Lord during morning prayer. The evening Fire Dweller meeting was harder for me. I went in a little worried about something so I had a hard time focusing.

It's hard to let go of things that tug on the soul, but I am learning. Especially when I can't do anything about it.

About to go to Twisty Cone with Tony to meet Sheree and Brett and Becky with their kids for ice cream.

Be cool.
