I am excited about my brother and his wife arriving today. I have been having scrabble withdrawal pangs :)
My excitement, however, is tinged with sadness. My son called this morning and my grandson has a fever and a cough so they are not coming. :( It's nearly a five hour drive. There is so much flu going around that they dare not take a chance that it may be a cold. I am sad for us and them. But a friend shared with me early this morning in the midst of a tragedy in their family that,
"Everything happens for a reason."
I'm not sure I buy that philosophy as a blanket statement. Yet as a Christian, I do believe that whatever happens, God has a plan for me and those I love. Close but a slight difference.
I am grateful for my family today and all of our blessings.
