So, what does noodle salad have to do with my “Sorrow, but No Regrets” essay, which appears today on CT‘s website? Well, Jack graduated from Manasquan (NJ) High School, where my father died playing basketball. That’s one thing. Another is that it hasn’t all been good times and noodle salad for anyone in my car, but there has been plenty of happiness and adventure along the way. Mostly, though, when Jesus is in the mix, “as good as it gets” is good enough.
I’ll be fleshing out the essay a bit later in the week, if I have time and internet access. In the meantime, here’s the link.
