This is an interesting month for us.
well, maybe interesting isn't the word, but not quite sure what to call it. Maybe confusing.
This is usually a wonderful time of year with all the celebrations, beautiful lights, and decorations, and especially our Saviors birth. All this, and this year our 40th anniversary the 15th, AND a new grand baby arriving the 19th, should all be reason to celebrate.
But this year is different.
We have just lost my husband's Mom to a battle with dementia. She was a wonderful woman, and after her 91 years here, and much suffering at the end, she is at home with our Lord.
We are left with an empty spot in our hearts and a need to grieve the loss.
It is a confusing time, because a part of us feels sad at losing her, and yet we have these other
joyous things to celebrate. So we bounce back and forth, sad one moment, celebrating, as much as we can, the next.
The Lord is good, and promises He will see us through.
We would appreciate your prayers, for ourselves, and for my husband's brother and his family, who cared so faithfully for Mom over the years.
