Some Family News
Family News Update: The kids and I are in the Chicago area for a few days visiting my family. Our visit is Bittersweet. A Victory and Worry. A Success and some Brokeness. Tomorrow, my brother graduates from the Chicago Fire Academy. We are so very proud and happy for him. We are all excited the ceremony is at the grand ball room at Navy Pier. Al has worked long and hard to make this dream come true. I am so glad we have the opportunity to be there and share it and celebrate with him. The second part of my update regards my mom. She is in the hospital again via emergency saturday morning. We have no answers at this point and she is in a lot of pain. I am asking for positive thoughts and powerful prayers. I am thankful that I am here right now and can visit with her these couple days while we hopefully get some answers. There is nothing so sobering as sitting at your parent's hospital bedside. May God hold our hands & hearts in these upcoming days. I will update soon.
