Simply Saturday

Our time of house sitting comes to an end tomorrow. There have been some challenges but more blessings. It will be sad to go but I will be glad to see Hubby again. We have enjoyed this beautiful home. Kind of like staying in a resort for us. (Except no one to do the cooking and cleaning!) However, we have been treated to many wonderful meals and have been so many places that we had never seen before. Let's just say that we have been the recipients of some extreme family generosity.

Saying goodbye to my mom and dad was not easy tonight. To watch them be so feeble has been hard. I don't know how much longer my mom will remember who I am. Each time we visited her, she seemed to study my face more intently. This is something that I refuse to think too much about right now. I pray that God will bring my family through our immediate struggle soon so that my mother and I will have more visits while she still knows who I am.  

My dad can still care for himself so he lives in a different place. They are about 15 minutes apart and only see each other 2 - 3 times a week. At least they are able to see each other and my mother looks forward to Dad's visits. He doesn't hear or see much at all but has learned to cope. He still helps people do odd jobs where he lives. It is fun to hear people call his name to come and help them. I think that is what keeps him going.

We have had fun here and I have certainly enjoyed being back online. Tomorrow that will come to an end for a while. I will miss my blogging friends again but hope to be back soon!
