December wasn't a very good month for our family. Our cat Bobo who had been suffering for the past few months with kidney and colon problems, was getting worse, so J and I decided to put him down. It was a very hard decision, but one that was the best for him. That same day I got a phone call from my sister letting me know that our father was in the hospital with heart problems and there could be a possibility of a heart attack. And thanks to God, that did not happen. He later had a quadruple bypass, and he is now resting and recuperating at home, and we're hoping that on his next visit to the cardiologist, he'll be given the okay to travel. Not too mention the craziness of the holiday season, and having both the munshkins come down with the flu, I needed I picker me upper.
I'm sure I've mentioned before that I'm a huge Jan Karon fan. I try to (re)read her Mitford series any chance I get. And a visit with Father Tim was what I needed. I spent the past few days (re)reading At Home in Mitford. You can find my review here. Because I started this book just before the New Year, I'm not counting it.
