We are having absolutely to die for weather here - glad you are enjoying the same! I love the ending of the first poem - the joy and peace to be home. The longing he has to be home in the second causes an ache. I want to bring him home too! But this will become home, especially after Sam arrives.

Please, both of you, say a prayer for my dad who is in the hospital with multiple blood clots - in both lungs and one in leg. He looks good and sounds good and should be fine, but still pray anyway :) Le hannon! *hugs*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

That's worrying about your dad, Antane. Yes, I'll keep him in my mind when I pray. Does he live nearby? If not, I hope the weather has been nice where he is, too, giving a respite. :)

Yes, Frodo needs a home. Sam will certainly bring a powerful sense of home with him. But as the iconic sojourner of the story, Frodo is, I fear, destined not to find home until at last he leaves the Circles of the World.

Sorry, just sent reply about dad as anonymous so hopefully you will still get it. He does live nearby so that's good. I love and ache at the same time that Frodo would have no home until Heaven but then do any of us do until then? But I love that he would be home there.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Antane, I'm so sorry to hear about your father. Of course, he shall be in my prayers. Will you keep us updated, please? (you have my personal email, if you'd rather drop me a line there)

Glad that you enjoyed the poems!

My dear mechtild and jan-u-wine,

Saw dad last night and will go again tonight. He may get out tomorrow. We shall see. But he's looking good and sounding good. He had some trouble with suddenly high blood pressure the night before last which set his heart racing but they were able to lower the pressure and the rate with medicine which worked so well in fact that the next morning he had been given another medicine to raise his pressure! This is apparently a normal thing that can happen when you have lung clots. It'll take some months for the clots to dissolve completely but they are beginning to all ready and the shortness of breath that he had before when he walked is getting better too. Thanks so much for your prayers!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Ah! I am just now seeing this (I've been out of town). I'm so glad to read this, Antane. :)

Sorry to be responding so late here. Apparently the response I sent the other day accidentially as anonymous didn't go through. He got out of the hospital on Saturday and is doing better. Thanks again for the prayers! *hugs*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Hi, Antane! I DID get a reply, but it was 'locked' so that i couldn't respond to it. Didn't know what to do about that!

In any case, I am ever so grateful that your father is out of the hospital and better. I know you are breathing easier now, as well. Take care, dear.
