A Little Break

I will be at Grimmwood for a few days so taking a blog break. My mother who is 89 has not been feeling the best and we are going to check on her. I would appreciate your prayers as we continue on this path of caring for an elderly parent. Most of you have been there or are on the same path. We want to be respectful yet firm as we discuss future plans. So thankful for my sisters who go above and beyond in caring for Mother.

Arlene, I hope you find your Mother improved. It's such a difficult time of life to see our parents failing. I will keep you and your Mom in my prayers. Hugs, Mary

Love the graphic you shared on this post! Lifting your Mother up in thought and prayer along with you, your sisters, and your family.

Praying for your mother and for you all. It's hard when the roles begin to reverse and we become more of a parent to our parents.

I lost my parents in their 60s but did care for my grandmother so I understand the concerns. Keeping you all in my prayers!

I also love this graphic!

And yes, respectful but firm is the path to take. Not always easy. I see that coming with my husband's mother. She has always said she will be ready to go to a nursing home when the time comes ... she has picked the place and the groundwork has been done. However, as time goes by she values her "independence" more and more and seems more resistant to the idea.

Certainly will be keeping you in prayer at this time, and trust that your mother is feeling better each day.

Hi Arlene, I am so glad you and your friends could enjoy the patterns. I have been so busy trying to keep up with myself, and just returned from a week in Virginia Beach to visit our daughter and her family. Now I need to address Christmas Cards because I haven't had time:) That all being said, I will go thru and send another package of patterns after the first of the year, these will all be ones I have completed, and I know I am not going to repeat. I love your idea of the favorite Christmas cookies. My prayers are with you and your family and your mother as she makes the transitions she needs to make. My mother lived with us 18 years and then spent 4 years in an assisted living facility before she died 2 years ago. Christmas is hard, but I have so many good memories and am so blessed. Thank you for all you do:)

It's not easy! Praying for your mom and all of you too.

I am in the same boat, Arlene--heading to be with my 92 year old mom for the next five days. I so wish I was closer--five hours is just too far and I'm getting older myself and finding the drive much harder each year. Glad your sisters are nearby and helping care for her... sending a hug and understanding prayers ♥
