Why I’ve Been Missing Lately

I’ve been checking in regularly, and also getting e-mails whenever my name is mentioned, but not writing anything new. Medium has become something I don’t recognize anymore, ever since, let me see, since mid-November? And also since then, my husband’s mother passed away on New Year’s Day, and lots of other bad stuff has happened here and in the world. Actually, I don’t know what to say to anyone, except, please, keep hope, and keep the faith, and try not to hurt anyone else around you. We have spent all of our time in the past few weeks trying to keep the water running despite the below zero temps, trying to feed animals in spite of the five feet of snow, and so on. Good must prevail over Evil. It just must.
