open letter to the IVPPosted: October 10, 2008
Dear The IVP,
I heart you. Every damn one of you. I felt you gathering behind me as I drove to my wanding this afternoon. All in the tiny back seat with your pockets full of those emoticons we love to hate – ready to pull out a smile or a wink or even that one with the whip at a moment’s notice.
There you were, clustered around the head of the exam table, craning your necks to see the screen when you first heard the RE say “hmm…. good!” under his breath.
I could nearly see you turning cartwheels in the parking lot as I walked to the car afterwards – you’ll not hold back on hope and joy just because something *might* go south. I trust you to hold all my enthusiasm safe for me for just another couple weeks.
