Sometimes Your First Thought Is, “Oh No, Not Again!”


Last night I woke to my youngest son’s ringtone at nearly midnight.

I missed the call but when I looked, realized it was the third time he’d tried.  

My heart skipped several beats as I dialed him back only to have it go directly to voicemail.  I tried again and a second later, he answered.

“What’s wrong??!!!”

(Because he never calls me late at night unless something is wrong!)

  1. I’m so very sorry. That sounds like a really rough experience for all of you. I know you might have been extra tired today too. Emotions drain. Stress drains. Thinking of you. Praying now for a restful night. For all of you.
