And yes, the title was 'suggested' by Master...umm a few days ago...as a reminder that i have been neglecting my blog. I am on a train leaving my son's and going to spend some more time with my mom. It has been an exhausting couple of weeks....but filled with blessings also. I have done a little (way to little to keep me happy and informed) blog reading, written an occasional comment, and thought of blogging at night when i finally get to sit and it us quiet....but then the call of a bed and sleep has been much stronger than the call of the blog.
Thank you all for the good wishes for my mom. She is....weak and tired most of the time. Her heart is only working at 20%. When she leaves rehab we have found an assisted living place that we are all happy with....with meds and a restricted diet the doctors say she should be ok....until the day she isn't...and her heart just cannot keep up. We have all spent time together talking, praying, crying and laughing....and for the most part we have supported each other.
I took a couple days to go spend time with my son's family...and 2 very delightful young ladies...ages 2 and 4. I was invited to be a guest reader at the pre-school the 4 year old attends. It was frog week...and i have collected frogs since college. I arrived armed with my favorite frog books and dressed for the occasion. My little grand was so excited to have me there, and we all had fun learning more about frogs. As i was leaving they sang me a special song...and the preK teacher remarked...You must have been a teacher..i considered it a grand compliment.
Over the weekend all of my mom's grands and great-grands will be gathering. There is a family wedding and it has been a number of years since a couple of the nieces have been back...so it will be a wonderful and bittersweet time.
Master is so amazing...even when we are physically apart He knows how to keep me close, how to comfort me....His words and actions always seem to be exactly what i need. We talk and text, and i send photos...some of the grands, some of different parts of my anatomy, some of an activity i am engaged in...He will often text me an extra task...and we stay connected...
I am hoping to be back home the beginning of next week....
