Church was stellar today, life class equally refreshing. Just listing to praise and worship songs on pandora, makes me cry, these songs are the songs we both loved,and sang in church, and with one anither, they fill my heart. I know she woul be happy right now knowing I am in church, that we all are in church. Getting closer to God, His Word. Today I am starting Proverbs in the Bible, I will read a passage each day. God has done so much for my soul and spirit, in these times. It is I who must draw closer to him.
I totally admire my friend Olivia, who went to Honduras, mission work. God is totally blessing this woman, she is truly the church in this world. I have been thinking of volunteering in the church bookstore. To be continued…
I know there are some major areas in my life that need cleaning up, I pray to God everyday to guide my steps, to give me discernment, and give me wisdom to see the truth of things, to send the ones that are supposed to be in my life, and the ones that are not to remove the ones that do not belong.
Did God remove mom from my life, because of a journey I need to be on, without her, I do wonder, but there are roads we have to walk. We will never be alone, because He is with us. Gods reasons are not our reasons. A time,and season for all. It has been 4 Sundays since she passed. I cried today. It will get better, this I know in my soul.
I love you mom.
What I see…
Looking out the waiting room window, today is a cold,wet,gray kind of day. It is Sunday, and me and dad are at the hospital visiting mom. She is in a state, upset about things, no details, but very upset. I hate seeing her this way, I pray this does not last the whole day. I really do not like hospitals, but here I am, rveryday with pop in tow, coming to see my mom. I love this woman, and want her to get better, and stronger. Emotionally I do not know where I an at, I suppose all over the place, just trying to hold it together. I will get there, I will get there.
Another worth while day with mom. I get to spend more time on Sundays,because I have that day off. Anyway, life is chugging along, they have spaced out her medication, the pain is not like it was in the begining. Still not walking or able to stand; but in time and with much physical therapy this will be possible.
All this is what is called adversity, we all eventually go through something of it. How we deal and handle it is the other thing. I was watching Dr. Stanleys program on adversity, what he said is so very true… God does not give you more than you can handle. He knows what you can and can not, and at which times as well. I know that if these things had come up at another time in my life, it may have been too much, but God knew, I know I am so much stronger for it. To God I give all the Glory and Praise!
Well, getting my time in with mom. that is all that is going on in My Corner. Enjoy your day.
Today is Thanksgiving 2016, this is the first holiday spent at the hospital. I feel so lost, sitting here in the waiting room, because sitting there in moms room is a lot to take. Trying to keep strong and not cry, but who am I fooling; certainly not these tears. Not myself or even mom. Here I am though,trying one min at a time. Looking out over the top of the buildings, nothing but pale blue skies. A beautiful Saturday, that should be spent enjoying great things with mom, instead here at this place,yeah what memories this will make.
I am not the only one, there are millions of families going through the same things or worse, but when it happens to your family it feels like your the only one. I know that This family has the love of God, of family and friends, and even people who have just met you. I write to alleviate the pain of this, it is my outlet, at least with this I can cry and not have to explain why. It is difficult to talk and keep from tearing up. Even though I know I have friends that will be there just to listen, no explinations of any kind needed. I find a kind of solice in writing,something I need to do more of, get back to. I am scared, I need to get back into the Word, that is what is going to keep me balanced in this time.
This has been a year of ups and downs, I pray the 2017 year holds nothing but blessings and greatness. Just writing this, has calmed my soul. looking out over these buildings, peaceful and calm. seeing the colors of the trees changing as with this weather. Hold the the ones you love close and tell them you love them. We never know how things will change. Be thankful for all you have and whom you have. So, now the tears have dried up;and I can see clearly. Time to get my strength and conquer this fear, to move forward and keep on keeping on, because mom needs to know and feel that we as a family has her, and is onboard with her well being. That means I need to step up. To grow beyond what I am, I know I can.
This has been My Corner… Until the next time. Happy Thanksgiving .
What I love about the early mornings in my life; are that it is filled with peace and semi-silence. Here I am sitting out at the park next to Central Market, waiting for the time when have to be on the grind. it is relatively quiet. There is bustling from time to time, with joggers on the trails, and the engine hum from the truck waiting to unload; otherwise it is a nice morning. I so love the early morning hours.
The weather is nice at the moment, but the gray of the clouds are moving in. weather is about to turn cold.
Glitches in my mom’s move to the rehab, her platelets were too low, so they gave her another round of blood, and is keeping her at the hospital. She will be there all this week, and weekend. They will see what’s what after. I terribly hate what is going on with her, to see her in such pain. Family, friends, and prayers is what keeps me sane. To God goes the glory.
Yesterday I had my first Chai Latte in a year. From Central market of course. I am about to walk over and get me one before work. I have definitely missed them.
So I shall enjoy my quiet time this morning, and I hope your day is filled with some quietness as well. Until the next time, enjoy.
With the family, gathered around my mom’s hospital bed. Looking on as the doctors come in and out, with news for the day. It looks promising, they looked at her feet, and listened to how much blood flow she was getting to it. It is a lot better today, than yesterday afternoon, it got better thought the night, and today, is a bit more better. Still no word on if they are going to keep her where she is in Round Rock, or transfer to South, should know something tomorrow. I am heart happy about the news, just keep on praying that the blood cots dissolve and her platelets are up high enough where they can do the necessary procedures to get the clots out. In the coming days, something will be known. For now, I am ecstatic with the progress going on. Blessings goes to the man upstairs lol. Updates will be had when more happens.
SSent in the hospital. mom is back in the hospital. she fell Friday, went to hospital Sat. they released her saying it was just bruising,,y Sunday she was back. it was not from the fall;;ut because she had developed blod clots in her arteries in her groin area, and not a lot of blood flow to her feet. Doctors are avaluating her, they first said surgery to open up the arteries to get the clots, but found the situation too risky, so nothing is being done at the moment, she has to get her platelets to a point where the operation can be viable. They have her on meds to keep the pain as manageable s possible and, stuff for her iinfections . She has doctors around her, and she will be transferred back to South Austin this morning sometime. I have the day odd to be there for her, as well as the rest of the family, but have to be back at work in the am. Yes, these are trying times for this family of mine; but God is hhee, he strengthen us. So off to the hospital I go.
Seems as though the new apartment move will not be taking place at this time. Mom and dad will be staying where they are for now, and I will keep the apartment I am in for another year.
This door may have been closed, but God always open up another. So I will not pout. It will all be good. God has something far better in store. Things happen for a reason. That is all.
To all my joyful readers and friends, A very merry Christmas to all. Last night I indulged in a bit of the vino.
Today, it will be Chicken and dressing, and maybe a bit more wine. So here is to a great day. My mom and dad are on the way, and I have the chicken in the oven. Got Die hard on. Urban cowboy later. Here’s to Christmas 2014. Have a merry one.
My bed has come! Yes, my readers and friends, it only took one year and five months; but it is finally parked nicely in my bedroom. Indeed, indeed I will be laying sweetly tonight, no more air mattresses.
So saw mom and dad off. They will be back on Christmas Eve, and spend Christmas day with me. This I must say, feels so very special. I have grown over this year,see it , and feel it. Being here feels so right. Life, well it is coming about. God is doing awesome things for me.
So today is officially the first day of winter! It is mild, I am hoping for a not so cold one here. Here’s to having a great holiday.
