In the works.....thinking about what's important..

Were to start.......
Last week my family and I took a little vacation to Disneyland, it was a great time, we had so much fun being together as a family and enjoying some warm weather.
Yesterday morning we arrived home quite early just to find that the airline lost one of our bags. All day I machine quilted this amazing quilt that Liz made (I'll share more of her beautiful quilt in a few days) while trying to figure out where our luggage was. I felt so frustrated by that. My husband and I went home at around 5 and were ready to just take it easy. Brad quickly got a phone call from his family telling us that his dad was in the ambulance on his way to a larger hospital, he was suffering from a heart-attack and was going to have surgery. 
We immediately fed our kids and headed to the hospital. Now I'm sure we'll be spending several days making trips to the hospital and saying prayers for my father-in-law. 
It's amazing how life can change so quickly..... make us realize what's really important.

  5. I am adding you and your family to my prayers this week. I understand what you are going through. We lost my mother-in-law two years ago now from lung cancer and it went fast. It only took one year from diagnosis to loosing her. I hope all goes well.
