I picked up email this afternoon. I hadn't turned on the computer all weekend because I wasn't home, and I didn't turn it on yesterday because I was busy falling into Deathly Hallows.
So imagine my sadness to open up email after lunch to discover that I missed the funeral of a friend's stilborn son this morning.
Please say a prayer for my friend and her family at this difficult time.
(Sometimes, I have so many prayers to offer up to God that I think life would be better as a cloistered nun just so I'd have time to properly pray for everyone!! Mary and Martha, indeed!)
