Starting right before Thanksgiving we started the run through the holidays fast and furious. Celtic Woman Concert - A Christmas Carol at the Omaha Playhouse Theatre - alway great - Tonic-So-Fa - first time to their accapela concert and was delighted.
Our in-home Holiday "Come and Go" was well attended and totally fun to prepare for then the Sunday before Christmas received call that oldest son was in crash and had been resucitated on site and in very critical condition. WHAT? it was like time moved in too slow a motion since we are two days away - little way of communicating long distance but on the phone constantly for many many calls over next two days - once we'd talked with main physician caring for him, we packed the car. Nothing else mattered. I know you parents will understand. Christmas is the celebration of God's son to Earth and that Son was to help us to ours. As they are to all dark couds the silver linings were to see other children and g-kids and family along way - there and back. Son is out of ICU - has had many surgeries but is actually laughing out loud in approprately places and knowing this will be a long process back to total recovery. We are still thanking God over and over for blessings, blessings, blessings... and for road travel mercies as we were nearly run into the minimum of 11 times by people on phones and texting as they drove. New Year and lots to look forward to ...
