My father’s heart surgery was a complete success, although we did have some difficult moments and some late hours over the past few days. I’m back in front of my home computer, and used the long drive to ponder some of the new insights I’ve gained this week on the dynamics of family, faith, aging, love and fear. I’ll be sorting these out and posting on these soon, but right now it’s just good to be home. I appreciate those of you who have prayed and emailed or posted support. Thank you, it made a difference.
