2019 – What a Difference a Year Makes

We are well into 2019. The first day of spring is now behind us. It has been over a year since posting to my blog. The last year was spent battling the cancers – yes, that is plural – that invaded my wife and thus our world.

God is faithful – isn’t He always? – and our lives have returned to a more normal time. She still is taking medicine and will for the duration of 5 years since she began taking them and continues regular checkups with her oncologist, radiologist, and gynecologist along with her normal visits to her regular doctor.

We are currently planning a trip to Germany to visit our youngest son and his family. We have three grandchildren there we don’t see often and one of them we have never seen in person. We’ve only been able to visit over WhatsApp or Facetime or Skype. That is betting than not seeing them at all but will never replace real hugs in person. This is the trip we were going to take last year before the C invasion. Now it is happening.

We thank all of our friends and family both offline and online who have prayed for my wife and myself over this past year. We are out of the valley! I often say it takes two mountaintops to make a valley. We are moving on to our next mountaintop experience!
