Witnessing a Precious Moment

It has been a long while since I have even thought about blogging.  My days are filled with caring for my elderly father.  Really it is not a lot of hands on other than meals, coffee, and seeing to his well-being.  

We were told late summer he was in the early stages of dementia.  Things I chalked up to old age...he is 89...and being tired were really the early stages of dementia.  The person who "told" us was not the most compassionate person or told in a way that was too kind.  Not that she was being ugly...I think it is just her personality.  Nevertheless, it was somewhat of a shock.  Looking back I guess we may had thought it was a possibility, but now we know.

One of our daughters lives with my dad.  Nice to know that we have someone who is there in the overnight hours.  I take the day and stay with him until my daughter comes home from work, or sister comes over.  He is declining.  

Early this morning...about 4:30 am...I was reviewing the camera from the night and earlier…

A Busy Life

Wow!  I am so far behind in keeping up my blog!  So much has happened since my last post.  I have been keeping busy with family, ministry, and my hobby/ies!

An elderly friend of mine needed some extra attention and help.  God has been so good to allow me to help her out and see to some of her needs.

My father, 89, fell towards the end of July.  He was down about 3 hours before I found him.  We are very blessed he was not seriously hurt, but did require a hospital stay and some rehab.  Our second daughter has moved back to Indiana and is living with my father.  What a God-send!  We are so blessed that she was sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and moved home.  Although we had many safety measures in place for my father, it only takes one little misstep.  I am happy to say that he is much stronger than before!  We have added a few more safety measures and our hope and prayer is to keep him living as independent as possible for as long as possible.  We have a great support sys…

Graduation 2018

Where has the time gone?  My best intentions did not fly!  I guess crocheting, card-making, and grandchildren...not to mention playing taxi driver for two of our off-spring has not helped!  

So today, I come to start again.  
This evening, Daughter #5, (child #11), graduates from high school.  I can not believe it!  Her plans are to major in Criminal Justice at Bob Jones University this fall!

CONGRATULATIONS DAUGHTER! WE ARE SO PROUD OF  YOU!!!!!
