Keeley and Jamie, please email me with your mailing addresses, so I can send out your books!
On a less happy note, my father-in-law, who has been battling cancer for many years, was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday with a life-threatening sepsis infection. He’s currently in the ICU, and though his condition has improved, his prognosis is still unclear. My husband is flying to Florida this afternoon to see him, and provided that his Dad continues to get better, he plans to return on Saturday.
I’ve always said that I have the greatest respect for single parents, and the spouses of military service men and women, and anyone else who must handle the day-to-day of raising children alone. It’s exhausting, even for one day, so I can imagine that the next 4 days will be quite an adventure.
This will be the longest my husband and I have been apart in 9 years. It’s rare for us to spend even one night apart, but I really do want him to be with his parents right now. Even so….I sure am going to miss him.
If you think if it, please include all of us in your prayers this week. And if you have any helpful hints for a temporarily single parent, I’m all ears!
