My daughter turns 30 today!
Sandwiched between Hannah's birthday and Jill's birthday, we had a scare as my Dad suffered a stroke. Luckily, it was a mini-stroke and he only had to be in the hospital 2 days. He has suffered no residual effects. You would not be able to tell that it happened. (while in the hospital, we were glued to the tv. Mom and Dad were missionaries in Japan for 30 years, so what is happening there with the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster has our utmost prayers and interest. Neither of us have cable tv so it was great to watch the news there)
When he was in the hospital, he said, "I just want to be able to go to Jill's birthday party!"
Well, we thank the Lord that he recovered and was released from the hospital so we could all celebrate Jill's special day.
We celebrated one day early at the Bread Basket. Can you tell it was St. Patrick's Day? Almost everyone in the restaurant was wearing green!
