I'm posting a quick message here late on Saturday night. I'd like to ask prayers for the family of one of Steven's co-workers. Her teenage son passed away last week and the funeral is tomorrow afternoon. His name was Alex.
There was also a young man who was in our circles growing up who passed away last week in some kind of shooting. My parents attended his funeral mass a few days ago. His name was Patrick.
Our good friends here who lost their little boy to a tragic accident last summer have had a rough week. The dad has been in the hospital for several days with a serious stomach ailment. We got to spend a fun day watching their 2 youngest children yesterday, and we are all hoping that Joey recovers soon and is able to come home from the hospital tomorrow.
Thank you for offering a prayer for these suffering friends.
We're making it through a busy weekend with the end-of-year homeschool party/talent show, last t-ball game, Sunday Mass, funeral, piano recital, and t-ball party. We had one child sick tonight, but I think it was a case of being overheated and eating massive amounts of watermelon. Hoping she is better tomorrow! We have houseguests planning to come for Memorial Day, so we don't need anyone sick!
