Wayne Wright here. I hope this finds y'all in good spirits and/or good health. We, the Wright bunch, are doing great, even yours truly! I couldn't have asked for any more blessings than what we have already received! I am indeed a very happy and blessed man!
Sarah, my wife, continues to labor with love as she takes care of our children: Xavier, Emma, Brooklyn, Promise, Mwugu, and Rheese. They are all enjoying the warmer weather and the sight of green on the trees and the flowers in bloom; it's been a very long, hard, cold winter here in Nashville. It is raining lightly here; the storms have since migrated on eastward, and it is supposed to clear up by this evening and be a fantastic, sunny day tomorrow. Just perfect for celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour!
We will go to church tomorrow: all eight of us. We will watch the Easter Cantata and listen to Pastor Bilkey's message about "The True Meaning of Easter". We will then probably go out to eat and then take the children to the park, where they can hunt for Easter eggs and enjoy themselves while the wife and I sit back and count our (many) blessings.
I have been working hard at the hospital, but this weekend finds me off. I need it; we've been very busy in the surgery department lately! I didn't get up today until 9 a.m.; it's been quite a while since I slept in that late! Felt good; I needed to catch up on my sleep!
Yesterday, I had to take Mwugu to the emergency room: he got stung on the nose by a bee. He is going to be okay, but he has a swollen snout. He was sniffing a dandelion, and a bee happened to be on it. The bee didn't like that, so he stung my son. You should have heard Mwugu hollering; it scared us! When we saw his swollen face, we knew we had to go to the ER, so we sat there a good part of the day.
Luckily, he is going to be fine, but he has to take some Benedryl until the swelling goes down. Which, in kind, makes him sleepy. He is in bed now sleeping off the effects of the Benedryl. Poor little guy!
Last weekend, Emma and Brooklyn had a baseball tourney; their team lost in the finals. We were disappointed, but the girls (and us) still had a good time. The tourney was played in nearby Crossville. They play Little League baseball, and both have proven to be very gifted, natural athletes; we are very proud of our girls!
Rheese, our youngest, is walking and talking up a storm; we have had to babyproof our home so he doesn't get into anything or get into any mischief. Life with a baby is never dull, especially one as mobile as Rheese! LOL
Promise and Mwugu are getting dedicated at our church next weekend; they will stand before the congregation as Pastor Bilkey introduces them. I know there will be a ton of relatives there; there will be plenty of photo ops for them, and they will be dressed to the nines. It should be a good time!
Well, Mwugu is calling me; he must have awakened from his nap. Hopefully he is feeling a little better. I will check on him and then I will get the car ready; we are going out to lunch and then take the kids for an afternoon of bowling. I will write in here again soon; until then, this is Wayne Wright saying so long and God bless! And above all else, happy Resurrection Sunday; the Lord still lives; be glad and rejoice in it!!
