I had a different blog I was going to post today, but I've saved it for next week. We just found out that one of our bloggers' mother passed away and is having to go through a difficult time.

This is the third time this has happened in our blogging group. While it's not unexpected when one gets to be in their 40's and 50's, it's still a shock -- no matter how prepared you think you are.

I was up in the canyons this past Sunday with my family to admire the fall leaves. While we didn't get to see much of the leaves, we were able to watch some rock climbers.

As we watched, I noticed that there were several on the ground as two were climbing on different ropes. One person had to go up farther to enable the group to climb higher. It looked as if they were all together in the activity, and I thought it was a pretty neat lesson on teamwork.

As a team, we present these blogs to you on a daily basis. We worth with each other on editing them and presentation. We are aware of each others lives and the time it takes to do this blog. We are also there to offer sympathy and support in times of need.

While this member of our blog won't be posting this next week, we might just offer something from her past blogs that we know will still be beneficial. Words of wisdom aren't limited to time frames, after all.

Our thoughts are with you Connie. Take care.

Well said, Gaynell.

By the way, can I get a copy of that picture? I've never seen that one. It's fun.

We love you, Connie!
