November 21 was the 10th anniversary of Megan's death. But, amazingly, that anniversary marker is now filled with wonderful memories for us. Diane and I spent five days at Sundance in Utah for a wedding. We enjoyed lots of time hiking on trails and soaking up the beauty. But we also enjoyed reconnecting with Arkansas friends: Phil and Annette Herrington, Glen and Nancy Blue (along with their children and daughters-in-law), and Jimmy and Andee Cone. It was especially nice to be with my cousins, Steve and Kathy Stevens and their daughter Juliana. Their home in Little Rock was a fun escape place for us during the Searcy years, so it was nice to have someone to remember Megan stories with. On that morning, I spoke to the little wedding crowd that was gathered at Sundance. Then, I performed the wedding later that morning for Phil and Annette's second daughter. In the evening we all gathered in the private screening room to watch -- what else? -- "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." Here is my journal entry from that day: It's 10:16 a.m. I've just spoken to everyone at a communion service, centering thoughts on the theme "A River Runs Through It." I wanted to mention Megan and how God's unending stream of mercy has washed and revived us again and again these past ten years. But I didn't. I could tell that if one word came out, I would crack and crumble. But I remember so well this very minute on 11/21/94. I thought maybe I'd be obsessing more this morning on all those details. But really--since getting up at 4:00 this morning--I've been thinking about what a blessing Megan was. I can't help but wonder what her last ten years would have been like. I keep thinking about "Searcy Megan"--the energetic little girl who couldn't slow down. But the "Abilene Megan" would have continued to battle sinking health and abilities. I had a daughter. I'm so blessed. I had a daughter who was beautiful and loving. The years will continue to roll on, but that blessing will never fade. And I'm ten years closer to seeing her than I was!
