My Mom is dying. The family has been called to Boise. I do not know if I can get there before she dies, but I was able to spend 2 days with her last month and, though there was no indication then of what was about to happen, I knew I might not see her again this side of heaven. I will go as soon as I can so that I can at least be there for the funeral.
Please pray for my Dad. He loves my Mom very much and has expressed that he wishes he could die too.
And please pray for Eric, Anna and Ethan. My leaving less than a week after arriving in Taiwan is going to be another big upheaval for the kids. And the whole reason we are in Taiwan is for Eric's job so it is no small matter to take time off - not that the company isn't accommodating - they are. But, well I don't think I can put this into words right now.
