Praying for you, your family, and your mom. I lost my mom 12 years ago to Ovarian Cancer. It is true what you say about dying a thousand deaths first. It seems I rehearsed what it was going to be like over and over the 18 months we had between diagnosis and the last day I spent by her side. She taught me a lot in those 18 months. I learned about dignity and bravery, vulnerability and strength, humor and sorrow. I learned what mattered in those 18 months. As with a lot of life’s lessons, they are learned in the valleys of life. That may sound cliche but it has certainly been true for me. I’ll be praying.
I’m praying for your mom…
We are praying for you, Linda and Frank too. Know it is hard on all of you.
Huge hug to you and your family
Undecided on the vote, too. But I’m thinking Pinto Beans and Cornbread for dinner tonight 🙂 Love and prayers to you all. 🙂 Give mama a hug from me!
Loved the “pinto beans for dinner” comment! Praying hard for you, your family and your mama. We love you and are sending you out all our best thoughts and wishes.
Prayers for y’all. Here, too. Got word today that my 105-yr Mom is hospitalized w/ pneumonia. A strong antibiotic drip in a pic-line will take care of it for now, I suppose. But it’s also the Spirit’s way of reminding us that medications and wonder drugs go only so far. And our days are numbered, and we are not our own. Today I prayed for comfort in Mom’s sunset season. For peace and for a blessed restoration of her to himself. Whenever that is. And prayers for a friend only a year older than my daughter. He’s lost in the early summer of his life, lost in the burderns brought home from war. So much to pray for and give thanks for. Life.
