Thankful for

mostly tonight I am tired and trying to gather up the energy to write this list and link and all of that...

maybe I won't do all of that.

Maybe I will just say that I am thankful that today a friend treated me to lunch and Harry Potter, which, I think, was just what I needed.  It was a treat, indeed.  An escape, if you will.

And I think escape is A-okay in an appropriate manner.

I loved the movie, just as I loved the other movies.  And the books, oh the books.  They thrill me in the best of ways--that we too, in a VERY REAL way, are in a battle between good and evil, and evil has been conquered.  It has been conquered.  So we can be brave, and we can fight for truth, and we can stare death in the face if we have to.  Ahhh...I love it.  Bravery.

That's all tonight, I think.  I am tired.  Ada fought the fight at bedtime and nearly won.

Hugs, lots and lots of hugs being sent your way. Thinking about and praying for your family lately.

This is the best description of the Harry Potter series I have ever read/heard!!! It kills me when people think that the series is anything other than magical fiction, that it's somehow sacrilegious - how sad I am for them that they don't get to become friends with Harry, Hermione, and Ron :) and that they don't recognize the similarities that you have pointed out.
Praying for your family and certain you'll come out on top of all that is going on.
