I was going to post a chatty “look ahead” post this morning. But you’re going to get a short one instead.
I would appreciate it if you kept my mom in your thoughts and prayers. Her health has been on a downhill slide lately. My oldest brother called me this morning and told me that she collapsed at her Indiana home last night. She arrived at the hospital with kidney stones, elevated temperature, high blood pressure, and toxemia. She’s 86. Surgery is planned, but it is considered high risk. They will do some draining today and schedule the surgery later on as her condition improves.
It’s going to be a challenge to regularly post this month because I will be taking a couple of blogging breaks. I will attempt to schedule some posts ahead of time. But if I suddenly fall silent and don’t comment on your blogs, it’s because I have temporarily stepped away from the computer.
This is the month of Thanksgiving, a holiday that deserves far more fanfare than it receives. As we amble toward the end of the year, it’s a good time to pause and take stock of our many blessings. Despite the personal trials and challenges we all face on a daily basis, let us remember to take a few moments to express gratitude.
