We did have a huge scare the night before Christmas Eve - my mother had another TIA (mini stroke) - her second in 15 months. I rushed home to be with her and thanks be to God she is better and better every day. We've gotten her in to see a neurologist at UAB this Friday and are hopeful we can start figuring out why these TIA's are happening. Please keep her in your prayers. Andrew and Kim came to stay with her Christmas Eve night so I could be home with David and the girls for church and Santa - it was hard to leave, but it was also a treat to be with my family.
The Christmas pageant at St. Mary's is at 4:00 on Christmas Eve and it's the highlight of the day! Caroline still isn't old enough to participate, but Catherine Ellis was a participant for the second year (last year she was a star) as a lamb. It's always so magical!
