I am in Tucson, where the high yesterday was an unseasonably cool 80 degrees.  Today, we're going to be closer to normal - about 95 degrees.  I'm hunkering down working on a retreat for the Religious Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of St. Dominic.  The retreat begins June 4 and runs through the morning of June 11, so there's quite a lot of work to be done.  I'll try to blog as I can, but can make no promises.

Thank you all for your continued prayers for my parents.  My father hopes to be released from the nursing center at the end of this week, and will be moving into an assisted living apartment as one becomes available. Mom is doing better today.  The doctor has taken her off morphine, which, while it prevented back pain, also prevented her from any semblance of normal life.  She's much more alert today, and is showing some interest in living, thanks be to God.

My sister and I took our parents' cat to her new owners on Saturday evening.  They are retirees living in Green Valley, and their cat of 20 years died last year.  Letting go of the cat was a hard thing for my folks to bear, but they don't allow pets in assisted living, and my mom won't be leaving the nursing center, so there was no choice.  It really drives home the reality that life is a series of "letting goes" as we become more and more focused on a life lived in and for Jesus.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
