Bittersweet Day

Yesterday was a bittersweet day for us. We were very excited to close on our very first house! However, we can't take possession of the house until at least this evening but possibly tomorrow evening. The excitement is somewhat lost when you can't even go into the house you just bought!

However, the delay in taking possession of our house is just a small portion of the bitter part of the day. Yesterday we also found out that Erik's Grandpa has Stage 4 Lung Cancer that is inoperable. They don't expect that he will make it much
longer. It was very hard to be at the hospital with the family last night and trying to accept their congratulations on our house through our tears. Things are very uncertain right now but they are arranging to have hospice care for Grandpa Johnny. We will try to spend as much time with him as we can these days. He is 89 and has lived a great life, but it is still so hard to say good-bye. Please pray for Erik's family during this hard time.
