An Heir Force Update

Hello Readers!

As Kate, Sarah, Spencer and Mrs. P prepare for Christmas, I am at a crossroads. I need to decide where I am going to go (and how) at the conclusion of Heir Force.

Some of my decisions include whether to stay here at the Heir Force site and turn it into more of a writer’s life blog, start a whole new blog and hope you move with me, or stop blogging altogether.

My next novel coming out in September, Cookie Encounter, is part of my Chance Encounter Inspirational Romance series and is not related to Heir Force at all, except for being a novel written by me. I could start a new blog using the Chance Encounter Romance theme, but am not sure that is what I want. I also have a part of me that includes scrapbooking, homeschooling, traveling and reading dozens of books a year that I could include in this new venture.

So, I will be thinking about this over the next several weeks and will continue to post Heir Force, but maybe not as regularly. Speaking of Heir Force, last week I had the opportunity to see a Scott Air Force Base K-9 demonstration and took pictures I will post later this week.  I was so excited!

Bear with me as I navigate the turns in my life and thank you for reading, and liking this blog. I am thankful for you. I welcome any input you may have, questions, suggestions, etc.

Kate Recuperates

Mrs. P seemed to be in her element. She caught up on the Kate’s laundry, made a delicious soup, and played with Sarah. Kate did what she could, one handed, but was glad Mrs. P was around. Sarah kept touching the rough plaster of Kate’s cast, frowning. “You hurt?” she would ask.

“I’m okay. Just tired.”

Kate Released from Hospital

The next morning, Kate woke up stiff and sore. She was instantly worried about Sarah as soon as she realized she was in the hospital. But Spencer told her what happened and reassured her that Mrs. P had everything under control. After getting Kate’s cast in place, some prescriptions for pain, and discharge instructions, she was released.

Spencer Calms Down

Spencer found the room Kate was assigned to and walked in quietly. She looked okay, except for her arm in a sling and scratches and bruises on her face and neck from the airbag. Spencer knew she would be sore for a few days at least.

A nurse came in to check her temperature. “Do you have any idea how she is?” Spencer asked, not too hopeful.

Spencer Arrives at the Hospital

Spencer pulled into the nearest Emergency Room parking spot and whipped out his ID from his wallet. He would get answers and he would get them now.

As soon as the receptionist behind the check in desk saw Spencer striding toward him in his uniform, he knew who we was looking for. He picked up his phone and held up a hand toward Spencer to let him know he was on it.

Kate Taken To St. Elizabeth’s

Earlier in the evening the Fairview Heights Police Department were notified by an unidentified Good Samaritan of an accident on the highway not far from the mall exit. One car was in the ditch. Officers Taylor and Griffith were dispatched to the scene.

An unconscious Kate was picked up by emergency personnel and transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in downtown Belleville. She was assessed and put into a room to await an X-ray on her arm.

Spencer Leaves Work Early

Spencer was worried. He knew it wasn’t like Kate to be incommunicado on purpose. An airman was supposed to be reachable at all times, in case something happened and they had to report in or leave immediately.

Something happened to Kate and he had to find out what. He found Sergeant James and explained the situation. Before Spencer could finish, James said, “Go, go. We got it. Call us when you find out what’s going on. I’ll leave a message for Thompson.”

Mrs. P Gets Worried

Mrs. P and Sarah were having a great time, listening to Christmas carols and making a card for Kate. Then Mrs. P brought out the sugar cookies she made at home and the items needed to frost and decorate them. Sarah had fun eating as many decorations as those that made it on the cookies. Buttons made himself useful by eating the crumbs off the floor.

Kate’s Dinner with Jen and Kelly

Since Kate was leaving in a couple days, she, Jen and Kelly made plans to have dinner at the Olive Garden in Fairview Heights. Mrs. P would watch Sarah since Spencer had to work that evening.

Kate drove on her own so she could get some stocking stuffers after dinner. Tonight flurries were falling and the forecast called for two inches of snow by morning. She pulled into the restaurant parking lot and went inside to see if either of her friends had arrived yet. She added her name to the list when she learned neither of them were there yet. She sat on a bench holding her gift bags.

For Fun Fridays: What’s Your Thrive?

I love the music group, Casting Crowns. Their latest album, I mean CD :), includes a song called Thrive. I love it! Part of their song says, “We were made to more than just survive, we were made to thrive.”
