A death and a birth in one week, puts blogging about Jordan in the queue

I was torn between extreme happiness and utter sorrow as my son came into this life and my father in law left this life with no more than 7 days between them.

This combo event put thing in perspective and I have hopefully taken the lesson learned and using it to better center my self in this life.

A side effect of this is that blog about Jordan day dropped from a very important event to an insignificant and short lived blimp on my radar.
