Life Update


I have a moment to give you a brief update on what’s going on in our lives right now. My mom, who will be 96 in August, had a stroke. She’s in the hospital and we don’t know if she will be able to come back here to continue living with us. It’s difficult and scary and we’re looking for the blessings where we can find them.

So, the good things are that her doctors and the nurses are excellent. She’s in a quiet safe place. The horses are fine. And my family and friends have been wonderful. I think that’s plenty to be grateful for. I’ll get back to you when things settle down. Your prayers and good energy are much appreciated.

I'm sorry about your Mom, too, having lost both my parents in 2006. It doesn't matter how long they've lived, it's never long enough and you always wish for just one more day. May your Mother recover to spend many more days with you; should God have other plans, may He comfort you with peace.
