Prayers for Dad

My dad went into the hospital last week and left on Saturday. He went back in the hospital yesterday. So I wanted to dedicate a post to his recovery — he has a long road ahead of him. One thing I am grateful for is that I never thought, “I wish I had spent more time with Dad.” I don’t know where along the journey of my life that I learned spending time with family is important so you have no regrets.
My youngest turns four on Saturday. I can’t help but be amazed how fast time has flown from the day he was born. I’ve made an effort to enjoy every year and the things he discovers each year. You just can’t shake time or make it slow down. Remember to stop a minute. Talk to a friend, relative, whomever.
We’re all busy. I still have that 150 page deadline due next Monday, but I had to go home and visit my dad. I’m glad I did. I’ll just have to push harder in the next few days. At least, I’ve written about 100 pages, so two-thirds of the way there.

  1. Thoughts are with your dad. My dad just spent about 8 weeks in hospital and rehab with a stroke and has still a long way to go. And while I didn’t enjoy hospital visits particularly, I’m glad I got to do them and that he’s still around for me to visit.
