Sorry I did not get a post out earlier on this. My sister and brother-in-law are in town, so there were multiple family related activities.
Some friends of ours got news that a family member has a previously undiscovered late stage cancer in the last couple of days. This family recently lost another member to cancer. While I don't mention specific names in this blog, if you can say a brief prayer of strength for those are dealing with loss and an uncertain future, please do so.
While I got some nice gifts today, I was happier reflecting upon my family.
