They say we'll have days like this... but nobody said they would happen each week!
A week ago Monday my son in law, Dylan, was attacked with a baseball bat. ICU, surgery, rebuild his skull and staple it back closed. He's doing great, but he'd planned on taking his wife (My eldest daughter, Kalimar) to a romantic weekend for her birthday, and then they would go to the game. However, they had to miss last week's game due to the extended hospital stay.
SeaHawks won, and another game was in store for Saturday, two days ago. They had purchased a non refundable hotel room for last weekend. However, not only did Hotel Monaco change their reservation to the following weekend, but they sent flowers with a card signed by the employees. So the date was on for this weekend, and then off to the game..... And then....
I flew in from HongKong, and we stayed with the kids for the night and Mother Nature's wrath hit. 50 mph winds and more rain than we've seen in a long time. Sunday morning came bright and early in hotel Monaco, with text messages to my daughter with pictures of their house after the tree fell into the roof. Dylan didn't feel well and my daughter needed to meet with the contractor and roofer to stop the leaking, so they headed home instead of the game.
Just when they were wondering what could happen next...
The SeaHawks Won!!!
In overtime, no less!
Sometimes we have to wonder how much strength we need to get through the days. 2015 has been a challenge for our kids, but they are survivors!
When the stress of almost losing your husband, taking care of three children, the dog, the house, a flooding garage, and everything else that falls into your life at once, including trees, and you can keep smiling, and pressing forward.... you have strength!
Kalimar... there may be a few more challenges
on the horizon,
But I know that you can handle anything!
And the SeaHawks
are going to
HAPPY MLK DAY!!!
Enjoy the Journey!
