MOM UPDATE AND PRAYER




My goodness !! Yesterday was crazy. I found out from my hubby at 12:30pm that he had a dr  appt at 3pm.  The Dial- a- Ride bus would pick us up at 1:50.  We had to wait at the Dr's office for an hour til our appt time. Then he was late getting to us...another half hour. :( And we only were with him for 10 minutes. If  I had known that was how they did things I would have just taken him there myself in our car.

Then I spent from 4:30 or so til around 11pm with mom. She is having such a hard time. She is not comfortable. She is scared and having anxiety attacks. :(  She says she doesn't want to die in that place. She is not happy there. I am trying to find a new place for her to go. 

I asked her during the evening if we could say a prayer and she shook her head. She feels that she is not worth it. That she is a bad person. And that God in punishing her for the bad things she's done in her life. I said that isn't so. She is a good person and God doesn't work that way. He loves us all so much. He loves HER so much. 

Later I asked again if we could pray, she said yes. :) I said a prayer. I am not the greatest pray-er in the world but I think it helped and she was calm when I left. I told her after she said that she didn't know how to pray, that she just has to talk to Him. Not even out loud...just say what is in her heart. I hope that this will help her each night to relax and be comfortable.

Thank you for your comments and prayers...they keep me going. :) Please  let me know how you are doing. I like long comments or emails :) See sidebar for email address.

Take care my friends.  Be safe and stay warm. God bless you.

  1. Oh- My! You have had such a hard time there with your Mom. I bet she does feel scared at night and probably lonely. It would be good if she could just pray and let God's peace roll over her and comfort her.

    I hope you are doing okay and taking care of yourself, Janet. Did you ever get moved? I think you were talking about doing that, weren't you?

    God bless you- I will keep you in my prayers. xo Diana

  2. I have been absent for so long, I've missed reading the blog. I'm praying for some comfort for your Mom and for you-it is a lot to deal with having a parent not well or unhappy. I hope she is able to let His peace soothe her.
    Take good care of yourself during these hard times.
