merry christmas!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!

My father is doing marvelously. Thank you so much for your prayers & support. I indeed made the trip to see him and I'm so glad I did. His spirits were high and his resolve even higher. The physical therapist said he's the strongest man she's ever worked with (his hand strength registered 20lbs more than men his age average) and he learned the way to safely move about by walker in an afternoon (she said it took a 55 year old woman she was coaching 2 weeks to do the same!). He's at a nursing home still but they're letting him come home for each day this weekend. When my sister told him the news about today he said that he'd come home this afternoon after his Christmas party at the nursing home. I don't know why but that is so adorable to me.

So this Christmas particularly for my family isn't so much about the wrapping of the gifts and all that stuff we busy ourselves with this time of year. Even more than ever as we prepare our hearts for the coming of our Lord we are filled with gratitude and awe in His Amazing Grace!

Your dad IS adorable! I work in a nursing home (therapy), so it brought a smile to my face when I read he wanted to stay for the Christmas party. So sweet! So glad to hear he is doing so well, and that he can come home and celebrate Christmas with family. Merry merry!

Merry belated Christmas, Amy! I somehow missed the earlier news about your father, but I'm so glad (such a Glad Gladys?) you got to go see him, and even happier that he's doing better.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, my friend!

Deb Kennedy said...

Amy I am SO glad to hear that your Daddy is doing so well! I am not at all surprised to hear that 'above-average' performance runs in the family, however. ;0) Much love to you all this season, and prayers for continued healing for him....

Blessings,
Deb
