It's amazing how we can take comfort in the little things.

Like knowing where the Splenda is kept, and that first cup of coffee that marks a morning . . .

With all that has been going on, we've mostly stayed at friend's houses in the States. But late Friday I drove "home" to Mexico with the kids. They were SO ready to be home.

Every time we got into the car on Friday my daughter would ask "Are we going home now?"

You see, it was Wednesday night that my hubby went into the ER, and was admitted for pneumonia.

So Saturday the kids and I stayed home, and late Saturday night I drove back to the States with the kiddos to pick up hubby from the hospital.

My husband had been so pale for so long that on Sunday (today) when I went to get hubby, and he had his color back I thought he had too much sun or something. It took me a minute to just see that his skin was just a healthy rosy color!

He is still a bit weak and achy, but he is back with the family now.

We really missed him.

And today we are resting at a friends house in San Diego. Tomorrow we go home. You watch and see . . .. I bet my hubby will be out on the field on Tuesday.

News on Virginia - no change really. Keep praying. I'm making plans for the deaf women's retreat and I hate doing this without her. She is the heart of the women's deaf ministry. We need our heart back!

I'm tired folks. Real tired. But we carry on, don't we?

Merry Christmas to you and your family. I'm glad your husband is feeling better, and I'm glad you all get to be home for Christmas.

My thoughts and prayers are still with Virginia and her family. I really hope she makes a full recovery.

I'm so glad to hear that he's doing better. I bet everyone can't wait to sleep in their own beds.

Glad your hubby is doing better! Still praying for complete recovery, and for him to not overextend himself. How's baby doing?

oh dear cousin! I have been praying for you, and yours! Saw your mom, and V&V this last week. Your mom couldn;t stop talking about your beautiful kids.

We were all together with my folks for Christmas. What a gift, a blessing. We have to treasure these more than ever now, with mom's health and the uncertainty that brings.

love you! Sandie
