It is only fitting that when I sit down to write my Monday post (which I have been remiss in writing) that I write about my beloved intern, Erin Gernon. Erin joined me on June 20 and returned to Hiawatha, Kansas on August 20th. Two months flew by and we accomplished much!!
Erin will return to Smith College in 2 weeks as a senior. And, I am happy to report that Smith is still attracting the best and the brightest!! Erin brought her smarts, can-do attitude, and tenacity. When combined with her Midwestern humility, she was a subtle powerhouse of capability and competence. I was beyond impressed and will miss her dearly!!
This one's for you Erin!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! You are amazing!

I love celebrating our independence. But it's not just freedom from the British or the birth of our nation that gives me pause, it's all the freedoms and rights that that independence gave us - speech, religion, bear arms, gender equality etc.
Thank you founding father's, and thank you all who have fought to keep our freedoms.

Last year my garden consisted of 12 tomato plants, 20 garlic plants, some asparagus, broccoli and onions on a patch of dirt that measured 10 x 10.
This year, Jim and I transformed a 41 X 20 foot plot:
Will keep you updated on our progress......

You were on my mind, in my thoughts and prayers and you did great!! If I had written this earlier in the day, my musings would have centered on hope. Now, I know you made it through brain surgery, tumor removed, surgeon happy and you are on the way to recovery. The spirit guides heard our prayers and your spirit guided you through the surgery. Your optimism, bravery, love, comsideration, spirituality and humility during these last few weeks have left me in awe, filled me with love and believe it or not, a sense of calm. Perhaps you are one of my angels, AnneMarie!!
A toast to you, my friend! To Life! To Living, loving, laughter, and friendship. Thank you for getting though the surgery. I love you!
