2013 ended with a crash. Literally. My mother fell last weekend and broke her hip, resulting in surgery on Monday. With three major issues with her heart rehabilitation is going to be an uphill climb, but one thing I’ve learned is that you can never count out a depression era dutchman.
While she was in one hospital coming out from under the anesthesia, my father was admitted to a different hospital in a different town. He’s 90 years old, and has several health challenges as well, chief of which is possibly Parkinson’s Disease. So this week my sister and I have been going back and forth between the two, talking with doctors and trying to help them get situated for what we suspect will be a difficult, interwoven path into skilled nursing.
So for those of you who have been wondering where I have been and why the posts have been infrequent, that’s the explanation. I appreciate your support and interest in my blog. 2013 was yet another record setting year for site visitors. I’ve learned a lot this year and I’m excited to return to a regular schedule of posts that will cover a variety of subjects. For example, today I celebrate the 30th anniversary of being licensed to the gospel ministry. For the last year I’ve been developing an entire series of posts that reveal the 30 most important things I’ve learned in my 30 years of ministry. In addition, I hope to be more diligent about reading and posting book reviews on some titles I’m excited about.
Thank you again for looking over my shoulder, for subscribing, and especially for passing the word about this site. 2014 is going to be a great year and I look forward to sharing it with you.
