Hi To All And A Prayer Request....

Hi everyone,

This  will be short. I am at the town library because we don't have internet at our house at the moment. :( 

First I want to say that I will try to catch up reading and commenting on your posts. I am about a week behind. I have read through some and enjoyed the fun stories and the great pictures of you decorations for the holidays.

You are all so wonderful and talented. :)

Sunday my sister called to talk to me about our mother.  They live together and so my sister is having to cope with things on a daily basis. She has her own troubles that she is dealing with as I have mentioned before, Parkinsons's, epilepsy and such.

She says that she feels that she just can't take it anymore. She says that she is just watching mom sit there and die. :( It has been a very difficult thing for her. I understand that and it breaks my heart.

We feel that is urgent that we do there to help but don't know how we are going to do it. Money wise we are just broke. We are 1,00 miles away. And trying to work out all the details has been so stressful that I have had severe pains in my head and neck.

We need to figure out what to do and get gone before the snow flies or we will be here til late spring. My sister feels that mom won't make it that long.  I have been praying them through several winters now. I need your help.

Please prayer for them. Pray for them to have the health and strength they need to take care of themselves and each other. And to be patient with themselves and each other. And to some how have the support that they need there. I don't want my sister to be alone if mom 'goes.' And I don't want mom to be alone either.  I want to be able to be there when I am needed. 

I don't think this turned out to be short. Sorry about that.  Thank you in advance for your kind words and prayers. They are always so helpful to me. I love you ladies. :)

I may not be able to post for a few days because of having to go down town to a computer but I will get your comments on my phone internet. :)

Take care and God bless you all.


  1. Janet, I'm so sorry. I do understand the stress that you and your sister are carrying right now. Prayers for strength :)

  2. Janet, I'll pray for your mother and sister, and I will also pray for you. I know it's all stressful. xo,Susie

  3. Janet, I am so sorry you are in such a difficult situation. It must be incredibly stressful for you. And your sister,poor thing , she has so many of her own health problems. :( I will keep you all in my prayers that everything will be eased and that you will all be able to get through this winter healthy .--hugs, Jan

  4. Janet, We here on blogland are PRAYER WARRIORS and I will be praying for your Mother and sister and for you too. This is very stressful for you I am sure.
    I am praying that the Lord will give you the strength you need and keep your FAITH! The Lord is good and he will guide you through this rough and stressful time.
    Praying and Big Hugs,

  5. Oh- Janet- I feel so bad for you and your sister and your Mom. We had a similar experience with my Mom- 1500 miles away and one brother to share the burden. I had 4 little kids and Mom had dementia. She lived with us for 4 years and we ended up putting her in a facility because I just couldn't do it anymore. I can tell you that the guilt your sister (and you) are feeling is just overwhelming. I will pray for you to find some serenity in the midst of all this anxiety. I so understand. Blessings-xo Diana
