Just a little Update on Mother

   Sorry, no pictures today. I just am wresting with unrest. We are constantly making decisions that are life altering and yet without a road map we do not know if we are making good choices. Our road map has come in the form or the Lord opening and closing doors. This process has led us to where we are today.
   Let me tell you dear friends, it is so stressful, so heartbreaking to watch your Mother as she fades away. She is losing 2 lbs a week and she is so weak.  There are days when she rests most of the day in her chair watching the birds and looking at her flowerbeds.
  Mother is still in good humor and enjoys visits from friends and family. I spend each day with her and I am enjoying her each moment. She still worries more about others than herself, just as she always has.  These are such difficult times for all of us and yet we try to find the joy in each day. We laugh because we can still find something funny in the midst of tears. And we share tears often.
 Please continue to share your prayers for us...we may be starting a new treatment this week and I know Mom has not decided if she really wants to try something else. We will try to follow her lead. Blessings to each of you.

Take one day at a time and push all the "what if's" out of your thoughts. Easier said than done. Prayers are with you.
