I just learned that my Mom was placed in a lovely rehab facility and she’ll be there for five weeks. Just before the holidays, she came home from the hospital but is not doing well. I’m flying out to Chicago on Sunday. I don’t know what to expect. When my brothers and sister call, the reports conflict each other. It’s hard because I’m so far away. Mom told me on the phone that she can feel the prayers that are coming her way and she was thankful. I thought of another thing I could do for her, but I can't do this without help. I could ask my blog friends to send her a card to cheer her up. I have this vision of a blast of love through card therapy. This is her address if you feel like you would like to help me with this:
355 Raymond St.
Elgin, Illinois 60120
Mom is 96 and has a wonderful sense of humor. She loves dogs, children and Jesus. I wish you could meet her; she would make you smile!
I recently posted about my 2012 Word from the Lord: “Obedience.” It is no surprise to me that now I must follow up my words with action and go. I wonder what lessons God has in store for me. I would appreciate any prayers you can whisper for me and my family right now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
