Happy New Year
The past few days I've been out of focus, or only focused on one thing. Number One Nephew was riding his dad's 4 wheeler, hit a gate, flipped over it and ended up in Texas Children's Hospital for almost three days. He is home, but it was very scary that he "felt fine" but wasn't allowed to leave the hospital or eat solid foods because he had a small tear in his spleen and there was "fluid" in his abdomen. Thankfully, with lots of prayers, his hemoglobin started going up and they let him eat breakfast today (he couldn't eat in case he had to have emergency surgery). Little Sister is looking forward to a good night's sleep in her own bed, and then deservedly, she and Number One Niece are off to Casa Mare with the Girl Scouts. I hope that all we know learn a lesson from this. Ten year old boys can't be trusted with a high performance 4 wheeler. They are just too much fun to drive fast :) We all have more Peace about us. Number One Son and I went to church and first Friday Adoration and Number One Daughter and I went to Adoration for a little while tonight when I got home from work. I love life lessons when we can show our children that when you pray, God listens.
