I’m back in Texas. My parents met me at the airport last night and it was so, so good to see them. We went to straight to Sonic from the airport. 😀
I booked my flight home last year, before I got my visa to Ireland approved. I had no reasoning for picking November 4, other than it was one of the latest days that I could buy a flight for so many months in advance. My mom found out a couple of weeks ago that she needed to have a serious surgery. Originally it was scheduled for this past week, and I was disappointed I wasn’t going to be there for it, but thankful that I would be home for most of her recovery. Then her surgery got pushed back to Nov. 6, tomorrow. I’m so thankful (and I think my Mom is too) that I am home and can help my family more during this difficult time, especially because my sisters are both away at college. This was a wonderful reminder to my family that nothing in life is random-God has carefully ordained everything and His timing is perfect.
Please pray for my Mom tomorrow. Lots of her friends have called her today and I have heard her say over and over that God is in control and because of that, she is at peace. So true! Thanks for reading and praying.
