My apology for not getting a post our over the weekend. It was more of a technical issue that prevented me. I’m also way, way behind on responding to emails, text messages, and phone calls. Please allow me today to get back to everyone.
Unfortunately, Friday’s meeting wasn’t as I hoped. The defense proposed nothing new. For what it’s worth, I made an offer that would get everyone moving in the right direction. It would, by no means, resolve the civil complaint I have against Austin Vantrease and Jonathan May. Still, it is an apparently practical and genuine first step. No word on if they want to entertain it.
So, we didn’t spend too much time in Wheeling, WV. I was excused a within a couple of hours. From there I went to visit my daughter, Kari, at West Virginia University. What a wonderful time we had together! I never wanted it to end. She is just so good for me, and to me. We laughed together the entire weekend. Twice I laughed so hard that I got the hiccups. When I woke the next morning my face was actually sore from smiling so much! The corners of my eyes were a bit chapped from crying in laughter over many hours. Yes, it was that great.
I just wish I didn’t have that feeling of always being torn. Wanting and needing to be in two places at the same time. On top of this, I hadn’t seen Sue for over a week. I hate that feeling of being pulled from every direction and knowing it’s impossible to make it all right. There’s always an element of guilt, even though I know I shouldn’t feel that way. It’s more than one man can manage, but that knowledge does nothing to alleviate anything.
Meanwhile, back home, Ryan was getting the royal treatment. I’ll just show you some of the pictures that were being sent to me instead of trying to explain.
Yep, if only I could be in two places at once…

Oh, just precious pics—esp that last one….OOOH. Glad you had time with Kari–and i do know about being pulled in many directions–definitely difficult to maneuver emotionally, very heart-rending. Loved the article in Oprah Mag!!!!!!!!!!!! FANTASTIC. I hope it will be held again next year. Love to you dear man–SHSP NGA, love to Team Diviney always, Annie xoxoxoxo
Did you see this that Gail posted while you were away? The story is about the Declutter in Ashburn. Very impressive story.
Who can’t feel the love in the last pic?

Hi Ken, the thought of you and Kari having so much fun together was enough to make my day — the pictures of Sue and Ryan and all the love just added to my happiness. Thank you to you and your family for sharing your lives with us. Even in the struggle, you show how love reigns supreme.
Hoping you and Ryan have a good day, and please give him a hug from me and tell him how grateful I am to know him!!
Love, prayers, hugs and great hope.
