I've been rather distracted the past several days.
Well, DUH, you say. It's the first day of school, it's your son's tenth birthday, of course you're distracted.
But it isn't just that.
You see, my little Daddy's been sick with multiple myeloma, and today he had his whole body nuked to kill off his bone marrow, then he received a transplant of stem cells from his brother. My mind has definitely been elsewhere.
If you'd like to read about my dad's journey from my mom's perspective, you can read their blog. There you can see pictures of my Daddy with his brother, with my mom, with my sister, etc.
And if you're so inclined, lift him (and her) up in prayer.
