Oh boy... they're HERE!
The bugs, that is. Ang is asleep feeling a little better, and Ali is asleep next to her feeling a little better, and daddy is in the rocker, feeling a little bit worse!
I have a history of vertigo, and come 3:45 today... WAM. Welcome back old friend! 8 hours later, the world keeps still trying to keep going left. and left. and left. and left. and left. and left.
Thank you to all who went over to and filled out Jay's survey last night or today! Again, if you missed it, our dear friend Jay Mooreland, co-founder with his wife Lonni of PUCK, needs a large group to complete an online survey for his class he's taking. For the first 250 people who fill out the survey, Jay is donating a dollar to PUCK! SO, this is an EASY way to help PUCK pick up another $250! If you haven't yet, please take the 7 minutes and 24 or so seconds to help Jay out. In return, you'll not only help out Jay, you'll raise some money for PUCK! Remember, enough tiny and fragile snowflakes makes AN AVALANCHE. Just CLICK HERE to help out! Thanks!
Post Script to Providence...
Remember the story I recently told about being with "E" in the hospital? Remember how I told you that I was supposed to be at work on Friday, but ended up there on Wednesday due to Ali being sick? Remember how I was able to be with him right after the Palliative care team said it was over?
E went home on hospice on Thursday, and passed away at home on Friday morning.
I like to think that Bella was there waiting for him.
If Ali hadn't been sick, I wouldn't have been able to say goodbye.
What lesson was I reminded of yet again?
I simply can't see God's plan from my elevation, so it pays to reserve judgement on the events occurring to me... like the bug that has recently crept into our home. The last one allowed me to be there for another human in what might be called one of the most challenging points of life... the end.
Call it attitude, call it faith. Call it what you want. Point is, CALL (on) IT.
P.S. Enjoy the slide show from my commute to my client's house. The Interstate 5 freeway from OC to San Diego is one of the nicest commutes out there. I am blessed to enjoy such a view in such beautiful (60 degree) weather.
