Today, I am thankful for Tom.
I am heartbroken.
Tom, an integral member of our extended Colorado Springs family, is in the ICU with a severe head injury - the result of a freak bicycling accident. S is devastated by the news - Tom belongs to his tight circle of cycling buddies and guy friends. Right now, I'm glad we're among Tom's closest friends.
Anyway, it's been a hectic afternoon. In the ICU waiting room, we gather. S, Rob and Susan make dozens of phone calls, finally locating Tom's brother in Boulder. They notify members of Tom's professional network so his dental practice can continue seamlessly on Monday morning.
We also share Tom stories, cry a little, console each other and pray.
For this blessing, I am so grateful.
