I was trying to put prayer requests at the end of each blog post. You see how long that lasted.
- for my mom's side of the family. Her father passed away early Monday morning after a brief hospital stay. He had not been doing well for a long time, so we were all prepared, but still.
- for continued good health for us. Ryan's Christmas break officially starts on Friday, and we all know about the Kolbe family's propensity towards illness during breaks.
- for a great visit with Ryan's sister, Jo Anna, who is coming to spend a week with us over Christmas. We are really excited about her visit! And hoping we don't get sick... see above.
- for wisdom and patience raising the kids.
