This is one time when we hope we have to wait a long time! Our daughter-in-law is in the hospital and will remain there until the birth of our new grandson. The doctor says she is at 32 weeks & two days and in his estimation, the baby will probably be born by Sunday. (He's hoping that he's wrong). They are expecting about the same complications as Michael had, but that remains to be seen of course. The hospital is really cracking down due to the flu season so her other children can't visit. It's hard to explain why mommy isn't around to a 10 month old! I've got a bad cold so I can't go either but keep updated on the phone. When I talked to her a couple of minutes ago, she was having more contractions.......

Just weary

Maybe it's the gray damp weather or the stress level of paper work deadlines looming at work, but whatever the cause, I find myself very weary these days. In the morning, I have all sorts of things I want to accomplish when I get home from work but what I actually do is collapse on the couch and think about how soon I can go curl up under the covers and sleep! The weekend is coming-maybe that will be the answer to those unanswered chores!

Home again

It was a necessary trip even if not one I wanted to make. The death of any teen, let alone a family member is hard but then family is the key word to getting through it too. Several of us were able to make the trip and a real hug is always better than a virtual one so it was well worth it. The time was just too short- five airport stops in 3 days!

Though I walk...

"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I have nothing to fear for You are with me..You comfort me." Psm. 23:4
I know it's a cliche verse that folks pull out at funerals, but it's also real. I can't thank those of you who are praying enough. My not-quite 18 year old nephew's memorial service is in Oklahoma on Friday and I'm leaving very early tomorrow to attend.
I'm sure this song will be going with me: Click here to hear a fabulous version of Amazing Grace.
