I had something lighthearted in store for you tonight but it seems that there’s been a little issue requiring a bit more of my concentration at the moment.
The angel who gave me life, also known as my mother, wound up in the emergency room tonight back in my home town. When I was a much younger boy and my mom would travel out of town (that wasn’t very often), I would cry myself to sleep in fear that I’d never see her again because “something would happen”. I see this now being the precursor to many of the fears I have in being a father but nonetheless to get a phone call like I did tonight from my sister will do nothing short but momentarily take your breath away.
She appears at this moment to be fine and will be fine but it was a scary moment nonetheless. If you get a chance, she could use a few prayers directed her way.
If you look hard enough… you can see that halo (on her… not me). I thank God every day for her.
