This weekend was to be full of family and fun. It was also going to be the "R" post for the ABC Along. R is for reunion and revelry and a few other Rs words thrown in. But, as plans are made, plans can be waylaid. While there was some revelry early on at the Greek Festival and Blazing Needles (our newest LYS) open house, it was over shadowed by an unexpected illness. Three of my sisters and I had to opportunity to get together for a mini-reunion and enjoy a day at Silver Lake. Instead we ended up with a quick lunch in a local park, but without our youngest sister.
As it turned out our baby sister (she is 34, but she'll always be our baby sister) spent the weekend in the hospital. She'll be there for a few more days and then return in a couple of weeks for surgery. She should be fine in the long run, but there is concern in the short term. The three of us ask for prayers and good thoughts to be sent her way. R is for rest, recuperation and a wholehearted rally for her well being.
