Today that my sister Jenny and her husband Jim were able to have dinner and stay with us this evening. Last weekend Jim’s brother- in-law had a heart attack, so they came into town to visit him since he’s still in the hospital. He was very touch and go initially (it took 7 defibrillator attempts), but we are all grateful that he’s finally on the mend. I’m constantly amazed at how resilient the human body can be. In one week, he went from almost dead to walking and cracking jokes. It’s crazy.
While I’m sorry for the circumstances that brought them here, I’m always thankful to see my family. Tonight we did a lot of laughing over childhood memories and family stories. And Patrick was able to share more of the whiskey he introduced them to the last time they were in town.
