|A favorite of mine... My boys fishing with Grandpa Pete - May of 2000|
For the past three weeks, our hearts have been on a roller coaster. My father-in-law was found in his home unconscious. He'd apparently been very ill. When I'd last talked with him, he had a bit of a cough but was getting over it. We made a quick trip to his hometown and spent the week. PJ and his sister spent hours at the hospital. He seemed to be recovering. We decided to come home so my husband (PJ) could get back to work. PJ has been back twice, and is there today. After a great improvement, where dad was talking and even joking, PJ had returned home. The next day his dad's heart stopped. They revived him, but he has not been well since. It is such a difficult and heartbreaking time for my husband and my sister-in-law. We have not given up hope for his recovery, but it looks like a long and difficult road.
We do believe in miracles, and we also have the belief that things work out the way they are intended to. It's all in the hands of our Heavenly Father. We are hoping and praying for the best...
Speaking of miracles, before I stop for today, I have to share this blog link. I think it will bless you!

As I wrap up this final post for the month,
Remember to treasure your family and hold them close,
in your arms if you can, and if not... in your heart...
