Life and Living

I haven’t been online much in the past couple of weeks.  We got home on a thursday, and I was so happy to be home, but on Sunday my precious father suffered a stroke.  It has been a hard road, but I’m happy to report he is doing well.  In fact he is coming home from the hospital today.  He still has physical therapy to endure three days a week, but he is a fighter.  He has been working the therapists at the hospital to death.  As a family, we have been reevaluating some things because of this trial.  We have decided that we need to consoladate mine and my mom and dad’s households.  As my parents get older, they will need me to be closer, so we are going to get a jump on it.  I’m actually excited to know that they will be closer to me.  We are looking for a place that we can build on or a house we can build onto.  We are hoping to have two houses side by side.

This experience has made me appreciate my parents so much.  I know that many people my age (late 40s) have already lost a parent.  I have been truly blessed in that I still have both my parents with me.  I want to be there for them as well as having a close relationship with them.  I also want my children to be close to them.  They can learn so much from their grandparents. 

I will try and do better with my blogging.  Be blessed!
