Old Neighbor

We met a woman today and talked about family and past homes. As it turned out, she lived a few houses away from my parents before they moved into their current home. They were neighbors for about 7 years but never met each other at that time. We laughed about what a small world it […]

Banished to the Basement

Today the hired caregiver came over to care for my mom while I try not to infect her with COVID and try to recover. It was very strange to be banished to the basement and listen to a complete stranger take care of my mom. Surreal and a blessing at the same time. I was […]

Angels Among Us

A friend of mine’s mother was taken to the Emergency Room last night with difficulty breathing. She asked everyone for prayers. Of course she was pretty scared. Later in the day, her mom was doing better as she responded to the treatment she was given. My friend was thanking God and everyone for their prayers. […]

The Pitchfork

When my mom and I were out and about in the car today, we followed a flatbed pickup truck. When we came to a stop light, I noticed there was only a large toolbox in the back of the truck and a pitchfork. I pointed it out to my mom and told her how odd […]

Mutual Respect

Today I stopped by one of my favorite restaurants to pick up lunch. I ordered ahead of time so all I had to do was go in and pick it up. I was very happy about that, as the place was jammed packed. My bag was in the pick-up area ready to go, so I […]

Dentist Buddy

I had a dentist appointment today – one of my least favorite places to go. But it was just for a cleaning at a new office. I met the hygienist for the first time who was super nice and wanted to chat. We talked a little, then she talked and I held my mouth open […]

Family, New and Longtime Friends

Yesterday my sister, mom and I went to the Parkinson’s support group. We met my new friend and her mother there. I met them at the grief support group I have been attending. The mother was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s and this was the first time they attended this meeting. The larger group broke up […]

One Good Turn

I rarely go to the grocery on a Sunday night, but I did today. The place looked like a whirlwind went through it and there were many empty shelves. I went down one aisle and spied a woman climbing on the lower shelf to reach a large bag of Halloween candy pushed all the way […]

Another Adventure

It has been years since the wood burning stove has been used at the cabin, so I had appointment to meet the chimney sweep up there this morning. I was glad that mom decided to come too. It was a beautiful clear day and the mountains were stunning with a layer of the first snowfall […]

Jesus is Everywhere

My mom had a therapist come over today to try to help her with daily activities and movement. She saw a picture of Jesus that was in my mom’s room. She told me about a Mercy Me concert that she took her daughter to last night. They were introducing their new album “Always Only Jesus”. […]
