    Glennon’s blog entry post Robin Williams’ suicide is the best expression by anyone address the realities of MI – for indeed, she is a member of that “care not to have it “community.

    But what blessed me even more, was her TED talk which is listed in the right hand side bar of her blog post.

    All good – thanks Lisa!

    Lisa Notes,

    I was feeling the exact same way about my fb feed this week. Argh! Is there a way to change that then?

    Re your comment on my post “The First Time I Ever Prayed THAT Before Vacation,” thank you. It was such a delight to be able to spend time with family out there.

    Your prayers for a smooth transition? Thank you!
