It's not really my day to post, but . . .

I'll take it anyway.

It's Heather Horrocks' day, but she had to catch a plane because she can't bear to sit long enough to drive from Utah to the Phoenix area. She loves her family, and since they all rode off without her, she flew down to be with them.

Whether she will arrive before or after them is immaterial. She's not here. She will show up sometime later this month to say goodbye, though, as she is leaving our blog team.

Now we have a new blog team member on board: Stephanie Abney. I'll let her introduce herself when the time comes, but just to let you know a bit, she is a witty, fun, marvelous friend, and a longtime member of ANWA. She has opinions, thoughts, insights, and ideas. She has experienced loss and disappointment in life, and plays the native American Flute. She is also the current Executive Vice President of ANWA. Please welcome her when she steps up to blog.

If life teaches us one thing, it is that nothing is so permanent as change. My advice, therefore, is to savor the moment. Take pleasure in what you do while you are doing it. Enjoy the ride.

  1. Well, I came to read Heather's farewell blog and got Marsha instead... a pleasant surprise. It's so like Marsha to fill in wherever needed and make things run smoothly.

    Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to my turn to blog and the fun, interesting and insightful posts of those on this site and the comments as well. There's a certain fellowship that comes with blogging and I'm anxious to participate. So, I'll catch you all in a couple of weeks!!

  2. It's always a good thing to thank your leader every now and again. So thanks Marsha. This has been/is a marvelous experience. I for one am grateful you started this blog and that I get to be a part of ANWA.

  3. I'm going to miss Heather's wonderful and insightful blogs, but I'm excited about Stephanie joining us. Welcome, Stephanie! I'm looking forward to all you have to share with us!

  4. Welcome, Stephanie! I share the entuhsiasm of the others in your joining our blog team.
