No Post: Family Issues & Prayer Requests

Hey everyone!  While the Zoo is blessed and highly favored, we are not immune to our dramas and traumas. 

This week has been a week of blessings and stressors.

My Mom had a heart attack.  It was mild and she will recover but it took a good toll on her.  Me too.  Facing the mortality of your parents is hard.

If you've not been there, prepare yourself.  If you have, I am so sorry.

If that wasn't enough, I have more.

My brother's father died.  At one time, I called him Dad too. 

The hardest part was telling my brother, who isn't going to be able to be with family through this. 

Have I ever mentioned my baby brother and I are uber close.  Or we were, he followed me around like a puppy dog and I hated every minute of it, or so I thought.  I love that boy with all my heart.  Well, that man.  He's 22 now.  But he can still make me smile no matter what my mood. 

That being said, this is all the post you'll get today.  I need some breathing time.  I'm going to work on the house some, celebrate my family, and go and join some old friends to celebrate one of my dear friend's upcoming nuptuals.

We are blessed.  I know that God has my family in His strong Hands. 

This week though, we need prayers.

Please pray for my Mom to have healing, physical and emotional, as well as wisdom in dealing with everything.  Pray for her to feel God's warmth.

Please pray for my brother to have peace, acceptance, wisdom and to feel God's arms around him.  Now and always.  Pray he learns from the examples from others so that he doesn't follow in their footsteps.
