Shout Out! and A Grateful Heart

Today's posts combine into one beautiful thought -
A Shout Out:
Happy Happy Birthday to our beautiful 91 year old mother, Idris.
And A Grateful Heart:
We are very grateful to be able to share this special day with her this year.

We had a bit of a scare last night (or this morning around 1:20am) as we were awakened with a phone call that summoned us to her side. She was feeble and weak, but soon gained her strength and we sat there with her for a couple hours listening to and sharing experiences and memories, and had a family prayer, and a bit of a slumber(less) party. Terry and I came home about 5:30am and tried to get a couple more hours of sleep, and will head back over to share some time and visit with Idris' doctor who is coming today. House calls still happen - this one time anyway.

(Awesome doctors is another thing my heart is grateful for, and I know I mentioned it before, but I say it again, because this one is making a house call - coming from the Tri Cities. How's that for medicine in our day and age?)

Here is a photo from her birthday last year - this year photos are yet to come.
