Allowing My Wings to Dry

Dear Readers,

Well….it seems the universe is calling me to take another short hiatus from blogging.  On 7/11/11 at 11:00 am, my marriage of 14 years (and relationship of 20) legally came to an end.  It is final.  It is done.  That, along with my dad’s kidney transplant surgery (scheduled for 7/19), is inviting me into a time of waiting and rest.  I feel a little like a butterfly that has just emerged from her chrysalis and now needs to sit and wait, allowing her wings to strengthen and dry before she can take to flight.  So, I am honoring the call of the universe and will be taking a break, returning to the blogging scene somewhere around Monday, July 25th.  In the meantime, I appreciate your prayers for my father (Donovan Lumby), his medical team, and most importantly, the amazing woman who is donating one of her own kidneys so that my dad can have a better quality of life.  (thank you Karen!)

Later Gators!

  1. Congratulations on hearing the Call to tend to yourself AND having the divine conviction to honor it! I love your butterfly/chrysalis metaphor; so beautiful. As I write I am sending affirmative prayers of love and healing to you, your father and Karen, knowing that God is smack in the middle of all of it. All is well, All is God, All is good!

    Blessings to you and your family, Lauri! I look forward to your return!


  2. Our prayers will be with your father and his donor for a successful surgery and a quick healing for both. And you will be in our prayers as well. You have given wonderful insights with a deep warmth that makes difficult subjects and times easier for me, and I’m sure others. So, my prayer for you is that you are brought the same love and support during this time as you have given to us. We will miss you, but your absence will only be on-line…not in our hearts. Be well, friend. Jan Jones

  3. Keeping your Dad and you in prayer! As always, I always admire your strength of soul and your willingness to bare your soul!
