Hello everyone, and to my fellow Americans Happy Independence Day!
I just wanted to take a brief moment to give a short personal update, as posting may come in fits and starts in the weeks to come. This summer has been challenging, to say the least. Last month I said goodbye to my last remaining grandparent, Granny Martha -- she was a pistol :) and lived to be 97!
Around the time we learned that Granny didn't have much longer, we also learned that my dad is facing some health challenges. I really don't want to get into specifics as we learned this week that he'll be facing some tests over the next two weeks in order to determine a course of treatment. No specifics because, well, I don't want to speculate "in print" as it were before all the facts are known -- it's too easy for me to do that inside my head if you know what I mean. =P
I'm asking for your prayers for my family, specifically health and healing for my dad, and wisdom for his doctors. Thank you all so much! I'm not planning to abandon the blog by any stretch of the imagination -- this thing helps keep me sane, lol! -- but I did want to let all of you readers know, whom I value as dear friends, what's going on if posts seem a bit more irregular than usual. :) Thank you!!
