Prayers, Positive Thinking, and Country Music

I’m really not a morning person. So being at the hospital in Seattle (45 min from home) at 5:15a, especially after picking up my little brother at the airport at 11:30p last night, is REALLY not my idea of fun. However, today is not about me.  Today is about mom. She’s scheduled to go first […]
