Prayers and Patience

Posted on: June 19th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Please be patient with me.  For all those who have kindly commented on a post.  Written me an email in the past two days.  Linked up this week with the Let’s Bee Social.  It is going to take me some time to reply to comments and emails.  And to be able to visit you.

I just spent the past two days driving to pick up my sister from the USA.  When we arrived at my parents home, we found out that my father had a massive heart attack when we were on route back to Canada.

He is currently in stable condition.
Your prayers and patience will be so greatly appreciated.
