I sent a note to Lucky and Rosemary...and also to Logan.

I wanted to send one to Mark Bohannan, but his contact isn't open. He and Martie are old friends, and if anyone has his email address, I'm sure he'd be grateful to be told of this..... Ron Travis too.

Dropped a note to Richie -- that's all I can think of right now.

Ed, thank you SO much for the added names...having Martie know of who we wish to find...that alone is a wonderful gesture.

Martie called me as I was on my way to McPherson for a book reading.  She is quite up...and a little scared, too.  We talked about the afterwards of surgery...it heartened me greatly to find out that not one, but three ministers have been in to see her, and she has welcomed them all, as only our Flower Girl can, and is anxious to get the surgery behind her.

Her son, Jay, won't let her near the computer.  I think he's afraid she'll fall into it, like Alice into the mirror.  But I have a feeling that he's peeking in and relaying the good wishes to his mother.

I think he's also overawed that so many people are joining hands and forming the biggest circle of love he's probably ever seen.

But then, flower girls bring that to them, don't they?  

Love to all of you for all of your blessings on our Martie.

Keep finding another hand to bring into the circle.

Late but not too late, I hope, to add my prayers to all the others for Martie and her family.  I'm lighting a candle for her until she comes home safely.  (Thanks, SIL, for letting us know.)....jo

Please let Martie know that my thoughts and prayers are with her, Karilea ... and please pass along a great big cyberhug for me?  Thanks.

I just want to come in here again to wish Martie all the best for her surgery on Friday.  She is never far away from my thoughts.  Love, Helen

Thanks, Ed, for those suggestions... We'll set up such a prayer clamor heaven has to notice! *S*

Janet Marie has called Mark. And I've tried emailing Cpat... not sure it's a good email addy, but it hasn't boomeranged back to me yet so there's hope. *S*

How like Martie to be telling us not to worry! She's unknowingly made her way into every heart here so it's only natural to see all this concern for her wellbeing.

Prayer, faith and hope continue.

Had a brief call with Martie.  She borrowed [read: absconded] her son's computer last night and peeked in...

because she felt some energy surrounding her, and she wanted to know the source.

She wants to thank everyone for their well wishes.  She is doing fine and getting stronger; she has visited with the ministers that have come in, and has prayed with them; she is preparing herself for the surgery, and has been surrounded by love through her sons, Taylor, and all of you.

She sends her love to each and every one of you.

She had a good breakfast, she said, and her temp was up "only because I had some coffee!"

She was going to try to call some friends, but the phone service that they have at the hospital won't allow her to do that unless she charges it to her home phone, and she cannot do that because no one is there to verify the charges.

So, if it feels good to come in here and leave another note, even if you did so before, please feel free to do it again.  

I continue to thank our host and webmaster, Ron, for bringing us all together over time.  Without him, we really wouldn't know what we would be missing, but our lives would certainly be a bit "less" for that lack of knowledge.

Thank you, Ron.

Thank you so much, Sunshine, for the Time Converter.  You are a sweetie.  I see that midday in Los Angeles will be 9pm of the same day in South Africa.

Glad to hear that all is still going well with you, Martie.  

More love and hugs and meeows and woofs

Thanks for the continual updates Kari!
I'll be online Saturday early evening, and maybe Sunday AM before pulling the plug on the PC, which is, of course, the very last thing that goes out the door. I remember the 'old days' when it was the coffee pot that went out the door last and was the first to get plugged in, now...it's the Vaio. LOL.

Martie,
Seems we live in parallel worlds, at least to me. And thinking of you today got me to reflecting again. It isn't much but it is for you.

Thank you, Sunshine girl for keeping in touch with Martie and for updating us as you receive news,

If all goes according to plan, (IF) I will see you, MArtie, at the end of June. Jim is hauling his boat from Connecticut to San Diego and I am going along as back seat driver (IF) I hope it works out. Get back on your feet, girl,so we can do something fun. I think of you every moment. Aside from the prayer chain, my prayers alone should see you through. I know you must feel all the love that exudes from the poetry forums. What beautiful verses you have inspired. What beautiful, passionate friends you have.
Love you to bits
Liz

Grateful for the updates, Karilea, and the address! Thank you!

***

And ahhh the voice of Martie plays
like a painted melody; a garden
of rhyme and metered phrase,
her amazing gift, her adored images
scored like a song; and ahhh yes,
I have longed to share a cup of tea,
me, the honored guest, she like a reverie
joining me in duet...
she who has achieved much, her touch
of words flurried, delivered, adorned,
received, and I see her now....

she is Strength on a bed of Love,
her spirit above all, saying,
"I am here! I am here!," so clear the voice
of a sister, so dear the forever of an
everyblessing and ahhhh the voice of Martie

makes its way into my dreams, and I am
relieved when we meet to share a cup
of tea, mint or green, me, the honored
guest serving her, and she, my companion,
my sister, my friend, our lines intertwined!

...
.... Love you, Martie!......
