To deal with family illness.
As we read here, from Koba the illness of a beloved family member has a way of bringing grace, but it’s a painful way to get it.
I’ve dealt with family members who have suffered strokes, and for a time did volunteer work with folks recovering from brain accidents. Hard rows to hoe. I pray Mrs. Sheehan’s mother’s road is not too terribly difficult, and that it will be made easier by the presence of her daughter.
