Stitches, Funeral and Wedding

It's been a crazy couple of weeks and this one is a busy one as well. Almost two weeks ago I had surgery for a release of a trigger finger... and no, I didn't get it from shooting a gun. If all goes well I'll have the stitches removed in a couple days. I definitely am looking forward to having the use of my hand back again. Although being hindered these two weeks has made me much more grateful for many things I had taken for granted.

After six months of waiting, we'll be having the funeral at Arlington National Cemetery for my mother-in-law. It will be a mix of sadness, remembering, and time of rejoicing as a family. What a joy to know she is no longer in pain and is in heaven with her Heavenly Father.

I'm especially looking forward to time with both of my sons. It's been a while since we've all been together.

Then to top off the week, my youngest son will be getting married to the love of his life. Our hearts are overflowing as we reflect upon the many blessings God has bestowed on us.

What struggles and blessings do you have for this week?
