Yesterday Claudia Faust called me in bit of flap. She was rushing off to the airport to be with a loved one who was undergoing emergency brain surgery.

She asked me to apologize to y'all for not having her regular column up. She asked if I could fill in.

Fill in for Claudia? Impossible! So here's the next best thing -- a post for you, Claudia, courtesy of kindred spirit Susan Burns and for all to draw inspiration from:

That was an amazing video - moving and prescient. Our best wishes to Claudia - she and her loved one have embarked on a unique journey.
our prayers are with you and your loved one. Sincerely, Susan
Ami, Susan B, Maureen, Susan KN, and my many other dear friends at RBC,

This is the first time I've checked in on our community since early in the week; last night I learned that my friend's surgery was very successful, the tumor was benign, and that her early moments of recovery showed signs that her sense of humor was still there. Not much more we could have asked for under the circumstances.

I have thought often this week about community, connection, and what they both mean to me. And even though I am a person of deep faith, I've learned that the thread of life is fragile and not to be taken for granted. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to this person quite yet, and am so very grateful that I don't have to. I consider it a great gift.

There is family we are born with, and family we choose in life. I am watching my granddaughter sleep this afternoon, and feeling tremendously thankful for both.

I am thankful for you all as well. Enjoy your weekend, and I'll be back online again next week.
