a rough patch.

10 July 2012

last week was great.
we went out of town, stayed with great friends and visited family.

this week . . . it's been rough. already.
yesterday my father-in-law had a heart attack.
and this morning, my husband's great aunt passed away.

so if y'all are the praying type, please pray.
and if you're among the nonpraying type, please send lots of healing thoughts.

our family will appreciate it all.
promise.

My mother-in-law told me that everyone has good and bad years. You just need to get through them and things will be fine. Not high philosophy but very sound advice. Always prayers.
