It is never easy…

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.

    My mother died of a stroke. I prayed very earnestly on Mrs. Sheehan’s behalf. I prayed that she had not wasted the last days of her mother’s life, wasted the last chance to enjoy her company, on a bitter, misguided lie born out of bitter grief that she won’t allow God to heal.
