The Journey Continues

PathwayThe journey we are on with my dear, little mother continues.  The road has taken some turns and dips and had curves we had to maneuver but we are still moving forward.  She returned to her home from the rehab center last Saturday.  My sweetheart and I are taking turns staying with her until caregivers are in place to help meet her needs.  She is enjoying her home and the home-cooked meals we provide.  The journey is slow for her and it’s uncertain.  There are changes ahead – some that may not be of her choosing – but she is quietly focusing on continued recovery from the fall that broke her pelvic bone.  Please pray with us through these next days as plans begin to unfold and the direction for her future is determined. 

Your emails and comments expressing your support mean more to me than you know.   You are very dear to me. I will try to stay in touch and keep you updated as our journey continues.


  1. She is fortunate that you are willing to be there and help. I know she appreciates it. It is hard for the sick person and maybe even harder for the caregiver! Take care of yourself too!!

  2. Thinking of your family going through these changes. Please make sure you take time for yourself too.

  3. {{{.gentle hug.}}}
    and lots and lots of prayer.
    bless you dearly big time, ad.

  4. These are truly hard times and hard decisions - ones all of us come to at some point in our lives. We were blessed to be able to care for both of our parents at home until they joined Jesus but that's not always the case. I'm lifting you up today asking for wisdom and peace. blessings, marlene

  5. Oh be ever so careful if you place her in a care setting. Some are good and some are not.
    If anything let her live with you and get a 'care' giver to come help.
    Just a suggestion.

  6. I will keep all of your in my prayers. I know the decisions and the changes are not easy to make. Thank goodness that you are there to assist her!

  7. I hope JOY is finding you in new and different ways as you care for your mother.

  8. You both are continued in my thoughts and prayers. It is not an easy journey for each of you, but I think to know that I have what I need for "one day at a time" has helped me. She sounds like just such a sweet person, and that helps enormously! Bless you and yours,

  9. Prayers abounding and continuing for you as you travel this journey. Lord, today is another day...sometimes that is exactly what I have to say to myself! I have tried to get in the habit of saying, This is the day the Lord has made and I will REJOICE in it. Rejoice is my word for 2014 and there are days that I honestly don't feel like rejoicing to be truthful. But I know that all in all...He has already went before me and leveled the mountains. Praying for you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  10. Still praying for your sweet mom, and praying for you and your hubby also as you juggle the decision-making and caring for her needs. ((Hugs))

  11. Hi Adrienne! So glad to hear from you and thanks for liking my room. Yes, I was a stenciling freak years ago. Still have you and your family in my heart and prayers! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
