Brother in Law on His Way Home Today

Today my husband is flying in a private plane, owned by a friend of his brother's, to accompany his brother home.

He is being taken directly to the hospital for potentially months of physical therapy, but we are so excited for him to be home, to see his boys, and get better in a familiar environment. Thanks to all of you who sent your well-wishes, prayers, emails of encouragement, and calls - every single one has been appreciated.

Everyone's lives involved may be vastly different from here on out, but in some ways already better - it's amazing how life's priorities can be made stunningly clear in just a single moment.

That's some wonderful news. I'm sure that being closer to home will help his recovery. The body heals faster and better when the soul is also being uplifted.

Your last sentence is dead-on. It's exactly what I thought when my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

I'm glad he'll be back at home.

It is funny how these things that seem so tragic can suddenly actually make your life take on new texture and meaning. And open your eyes to a whole world you didn't know existed.
