Mini-stroke, Yellow Jackets, & Chipmunks

(An email from Lucia to our small group about her mom having a mini-stroke on Monday evening.)

Thank you all for your messages of support and prayer. I took the kids to my parents house for the afternoon to spend some time with my Mom. Amazingly she shows no signs of a stroke. She is mentally alert and shows no sign of any gaps and physical had no signs that anything had happened.

It is very kind of God for the reminder that either she or my Father could pass away at any time although they are in good health. I am grateful for the time spent with her. Even though it has been an emotional roller coaster for me today and thus tiring, I am grateful for the opportunity to express my love for her and give our kids yet another memory with Grandma.

That memory will be cemented in their minds as both Tristen and Haydn were stung by yellow jackets. Tristen in the knee but Haydn in the lip. Haydn’s lip was probably three times the normal size and he had the cheeks of a chipmunk storing away nuts for the winter! Thankfully they are both doing fine.

So glad we can walk through life together supporting each other in the unexpected events of life as well as the mundane.

Look forward to seeing you Sunday!
