What a busy time it has been. Over the past few months, I have experienced some extreme highs and lows, from the international gathering of catechists in Arizona (a high) to days in the hospital with our little one with words like encephalitis and viral brain infection being verbalized (an all time low). Intense joy and intense fear. We have enjoyed vacations, birthdays, the recovery of motor skills in our little one, and a gratefulness for all of the simple joys of life. I guess you could say we are having a complete immersion in "real life"! I hope to share some of those joys with you, and look forward to the beautiful season of advent, and all of the anticipation it brings! I hope that each of you are well, and I ask that you will keep my family in your prayers.
eta: our little one is fine - thankfully he has made a full recovery and it appears has no lingering issues. His patron saints are Isaac the Syrian and St. John of Damascus.
