Entry: "Taking a moment..."
I’ve decided to take a brief hiatus while I take care of some family issues. I’m also making another trip up to Pennsylvania to be there with my Mom while she has surgery on Monday the 6th. Her birthday was the 4th and she has to have surgery on the 6th...*sigh* But I know she's in good hands, God has already worked this out for her. Although the circumstances of my making the trip are not for fun and games, it is still a blessing for me whenever I get a chance to see the rest of my family who lives up that way. Plus now I get to say Happy Belated Birthday to her in person this year! Me and my other lovely sister Tina from Richmond, Va. were originally hoping to meet each other halfway in Breezewood, Pa., and then make the trip the rest of the trip together but circumstances on my end make that scenario improbable, thus she’ll be leaving before me and will be there by the time I make it up there. Plus she’ll have a pretty active 3 year old along with her, so her drive is going to be a bit more stressful no doubt, while I’ll be making the trip solo…At least on the trip back we can follow each other halfway, although her drive is a lot longer than mine, I think she got maybe around 8 hours while mine is about 4 and a half hours, maybe 5 if the troopers are acting like "batches".
7 brothers and sisters helped me to understand.

Have a great trip, or as great as the circumstances allow. I look forward to hearing an update when you return. BTW, I'm liking the new look.

I wish nothing but the best for your mother during and after her surgery. It's nice that you do get to see other family members at the same time. I also think it's great that everyone considers your mother's surgery important enough to be there as a family. That says a lot.

Damn man. I just sent you an e-mail asking you something totally irrelevant in light of things going on in your life. First, lots of prayers for your mom and family and that her surgery goes very well man.
Today is my mom's birthday also. I know that you'll have lots on your mind for the next few days. Stay strong buddy and we look forward to having you back here in the fold. Be cool.
Amazing....we both were here at the same time, and in fact I just replied to your email...it's all good Frank, I consider everything in my life to be relevant regardless of whatever else is going on. I appreciate your vibe and especially your thoughts and prayers for Mom...and how cool is it that our Moms share a B-Day? Anyway, life is good, I'll vibe ya on the rebound!
