Hope In Him

Today a friend shared her reflection on 2 Corinthians 5:8 “Yet we are courageous, and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord.” She wrote about how the scripture gave her hope after her grandmother died. I thought it was beautiful. Tonight I went to a grief support group. Part of […]

Virtual Visit

My mom had a doctor’s appointment today, but we woke up to below freezing temperatures and snowy roads. I called the office and thankfully they said we could have a virtual appointment. The doctor was super nice and we got all our questions answered. When I thanked him profusely for meeting with us virtually, he […]

Praying For Healing

We have a list of people we pray for every day to Our Lady of Lourdes for healing. A friend of mine had a serious infection and was hospitalized even over Thanksgiving. It was such great news to hear that she went home today. Another friend has a nephew who was in a car accident […]

Master Puzzler

My mom had another good day today. She had good energy, got around well, and made it to church. She could even hear the homily somewhat. This afternoon after her nap, she sat down at the puzzle. There were about 30 pieces left to complete the picture. Usually when she starts working, she announces that […]

Magic Blazer

I made a trip to the cabin today and brought my 19 year old grandson with me. He loves it up there so was happy to go along for the ride. On the way up, we stopped at the most amazing donut shop that has been there for decades. We bought half a dozen and […]

Quiet Rest

It has been a pretty busy week, even though we didn’t host Thanksgiving. Today we had no appointments, no visitors, no therapists. My mom was pretty happy about that. We sat out in the sunshine, worked the puzzle a bit, and enjoyed eating leftovers. We basically just took the day as it came. It was […]

Short And Sweet

I am so grateful my son hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year. They hung the banner that we made the other day over the long tables that stretched out from the dining room into the living room. Everyone pitched in with delicious food and brought home leftovers. I am grateful my mom took a good nap […]

Fruitful Day

It was a busy day as usual. But as I sat down tonight to write and went back over my day, I realized I accomplished an awful lot. Mom and I did our “normal” Wednesday tasks. And I even made a pumpkin cheesecake and apple pie for tomorrow. The house smells amazing. I’m looking forward […]

Thanksgiving Craft Day

Since my granddaughter is out of school, I thought it would be fun to have her over and make a Thanksgiving decoration. My mom was feeling ok so it worked out. First my granddaughter and mom had some time to hang out together while I made lunch. My granddaughter started out in the chair across […]

A Good Day

My mom hasn’t been feeling well at all the past couple weeks. Today I could see the sparkle in her eye and she said she felt better. We went for a walk, sat outside, she exercised with the therapist, played the piano, had a good appetite… It was a good day and we were grateful […]
