Looking Back

I have been looking forward for weeks. Forward to 2009, making plans, being excited about what the future holds. But today, I woke up looking back.

What an amazing year it's been. 2008 was very good to me. In the past year, I've dove head first into journal making and photography. I've committed to blogging. I've made many wonderful friends.

But most of all, 2008 brought my dad and I together. I am so thankful for the times he and I have had. The visits during my trips to Utah, the phone conversations. The discovery that we are very much alike.

And now, my blog takes a bit of a different turn for this post. 5am and 2 phone calls already this morning. The second one was from my dad. He knows my schedule, and that makes me smile. We had a nice little chat and he re-affirmed to me that life is good.

The first phone call I received though was from my oldest sister. I am the youngest of five children, and we are very spread out in age. My oldest sister, her name is Wanda. She and her family are in crisis mode. Wanda's 22 month old grand-daughter was struck by a car yesterday. She darted out in front of a car while her mom was buckling the baby into her car seat. Lizzie is in an medically induced coma. She has a torn liver, a broken vertebra and a bruise on her brain.

My gut feeling from what Wanda told me is that Lizzie is a fighter. I think she will pull through this. But the family is hurting. They all need rest and faith. Any prayers you guys could shoot out to them would be greatly appreciated.
