Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Missing Shannon

This post is for Shannon.
All the rest of you may peek in - - -
But it is for my friend, Shannon.

Shannon and I taught together
For the better part of one school year.
Then she went away to become a new mommy.
She would return sometimes to bring me lunch
(Great friend that Shannon!!!)
And we had a couple of "girls nights."

Then she moved away.
Far away.
And she is getting ready (maybe)
To move even farther.


Today is your birthday.
I just want to do my little bit
To make it more special.
So, since blogging is my spiritual gift,
I'm making this post just for you.


For your birthday I wish for you
Courage and strength
On this part of the journey.

You are loved!!

Awww... how sweet! I don't know you, Shannon, but you must be a very special lady if Keetha thinks so highly of you. Happy Birthday.

Keetha said...

Oh Shannie - - - how fun would it be to have lunch again!!! I love you - - - - keep your chin up, God has JUST the place for you, Halle, and Brian and in His perfect timing He will let you know where it is!!!!!

This was so sweet. Since I just had a neighbor move away, I can totally relate to someone leaving

Happy Birthday Keetha's Friend!! :)

Shannon said...

Thanks again Keetha! I have cried many tears in the past few days trying to really seek God's plan. Life was so much simpler hanging out with middle schoolers! I can't believe how little Halle looks in that picture!

Happy Birthday to Shannon!

I understand all about missing friends. Sorry Keetha.

Keetha said...

Shannon - - - God will open the right doors. It's just difficult sometimes for us to wait on those doors. Halle WAS little in that picture!!! Remember - - -you carried her in her little carrier and were also trying to balance my lunch!!!

Did Shannon teach at LCS ?

Keetha said...

Yes, Jackie. She took Michelle Hawk's place and finished the year when Michelle had Eily.

Jackie said...

ok. thanks. i just don't remember her. I remember michelle being off for Eily, but nothing after that.
(I'm old.) :-)

Keetha said...

Well, by then Jackie, you didn't have Blake at the school any more, so I'm not surprised you don't remember!!!
