I know I have some faithful, thoughtful, perhaps even prayerful, readers :).
My mom had a stroke this weekend and is doing OK, but still undergoing tests. I'm waiting to see if this means some changes in her living conditions (like living alone).
Also, one of our homeschooling families just found out that their daughter Nadine (16) has leukemia, and she starts chemo tomorrow. She will be in the Children's Hospital for the next month and so good thoughts going out to her are appreciated! She is a very talented young musician and a lovely person, as is her mother, and I am holding them in the light.
