I never in a million years imagined the warm and wonderful comments that I received yesterday. I'd kept my story quiet for what felt like a long time. I'm so glad that I told it, and that I have such compassionate blog friends. None of us is really alone out here.
While I spent a few hours in the hospital today being injected with radioactive glucose and then being scanned, I remembered an incredible sunset that we saw last week at Dead Horse State Park near Moab, Utah. A popular state park is usually a place that we avoid like the plague because we value solitude in the wilderness. However, we thought that Thanksgiving Day at dinner time would probably be pretty quiet. We were right.
We ventured out to a lookout where we could see a sweeping curve in the Colorado River.
