Sobering and Hairy

It's funny how you sometimes miss things like phone calls, simply because for a few minutes, you are out of earshot. It's really sobering to think of how one message on the answering machine can change things completely! But yet this is what happened on Monday night at our house.

It's been a hairy week...my mom is very fortunate to be alive and will hopefully be able to go home today. We are in the midst of preparations for our trip and have very few sleeps to go until we leave. We got home last night, are packing up the kids and will leave tonight to take them to their caregivers for next week.

The one thing I do know as I sit here and type is this...God's hand is firmly upon my family and no matter what comes our way, we will make it through. I will try and get something typed before we leave, but if not, we'll talk to you in a few weeks!

Curious Servant ~ Thanks so much for your prayer...things are finally starting to regain some normalcy. We say goodbye to our kids tonight and on Wednesday will leave to meet up with Jollybeggar and Padawan in Sri Lanka.

I pray your summer is going well...I've enjoyed seeing your pictures of vacation and your family...blessings to you and yours!
