The Beelieve You Can THRIVE - E - Eternally THRIVING lesson will be delayed. I'm finding it very difficult to get online or even on the computer. I'm spending as much time as I can with my mother while we visit her here in PA. I know you all understand, and I truly appreciate your prayers.
I was just telling my sister, Marsha, last night that I miss you all so much! I feel disconnected from you all. I'm homesick for my blogging family! I must find a balance. I receive such a blessing and filling of the Holy Spirit when I visit your blogs! I need the fellowship as well.
Right now my mother seems a bit weary and I believe she is doing all she can to "Hang On" until the memorial service is over for my stepfather as well as some others things she is waiting on. Much of my mother is an independent woman, then there is another part of her that is scared to death to be by herself. So many things for an 86 year old woman to think about and deal with right now. The strain of it all is showing. Although we have been able to get mom to laugh as well.
Jim is working on his "honey do" list from mom. And believe it or not, she is allowing me to cook too! So I am glad she is allowing us to help. A big thing is she has allowed our dogs to come inside and lay on her indoor sun room. The dogs are so good. The door between the rest of the house and that room is wide open and they know not to come in. Mom even goes out there and sits with them and pets them! Animals have a calming effect on humans. I keep telling mom she needs a companion.
I have been enjoying the weather, even though we have had some rain. I have been taking a walk every day, enjoying the beautiful scenery as well.
God bless you all!
