April 29, 2006


I have been a bad blogger. The 12 hour days I’ve been working have certainly taken a toll on my time and energy … that and the fact that being away from His Holiness has me in something of an extended funk. However, yesterday I had quite a treat. Since I’ve been gone, now almost six weeks, HH has been blue – he’s wondering where Papa went and when I’ll be coming home. He hasn’t been particularly eager to speak with me on the phone either, and frequently starts weeping when he hears my voice on the other end of the line. That changed yesterday when his mother handed him the phone and he proceeded to sing to me in German, two children’s songs. His small voice was a balm to my heart.

More anon …
