Due to her physical ailments, I think my mom has come to the grocery store with me maybe once or twice since I moved here 3 years ago. I had to make a grocery store run today and she decided to come along and help. So off we went. We split up the list and headed in different directions. When we reconnected, I was surprised that she still had more energy in her. We finished the shopping and went back home where she took some nice long rest time. She said she was exhausted from the experience, but at the same time it was so good for her. She had to figure out where things were, how much to get, and how to open those crazy produce bags that are so difficult (to me anyways). It was a challenging outing for her, but in a good way. She even took another walk around the complex this afternoon.
I Found God today as my mom challenged herself and is able to do more than anticipated.
