Just a quick update…we are in the process of getting Dad ready to come back home.
I know…I’m in shock myself. But as my dad has always done, he has managed to set his own path, beating the odds, and leaving the doctors scratching their heads.
He has spent some time recovering in a nursing home nearby, but the time is coming soon in which he can return home. And we’re hoping that his journey to recovery continues to astound us.
While I’m typing this, I’m sitting in a room in Nashville, TN, where the events of the last 24 hours still amaze me.
I was privileged to be seated five rows back from an address by not only the US Secretary of Ag, Sonny Perdue, but also by President Donald Trump. Now, I get that not everyone agrees with his policies, but we should all admit that being able to personally witness an address by a sitting President is an honor.
And I followed that with a live interview on Fox and Friends…that’s right, national TV. Seriously.
Sometimes the events that unfold in my life just take my breath away. But I’ll chat more about that tomorrow.
For now, I hope you have all jumped into 2018 with both feet, tackling the new year with renewed vigor and hope. For we never know what tomorrow may bring.
Heck, we aren’t even certain about today.
I have had the honor of meeting and visiting with former presidents Carter and Ford, and a variety of other interesting people. While I may not agree with any President’s total agenda or actions, I believe we should treat them and the Office with dignity and discretion. It is no wonder that the Alabama? football player made crude statements about President Trump, he is routinely treated with disrespect in the press. I disagreed vehemently with the misguided actions of his predecessor, but I didn’t do the kind of ugly stuff they do…routinely, now. Glad to hear about your dad, sometimes life can take your breath away.
Glad your Dad is doing so well and that you had an amazing time at AFBF.
