Thank you Esme. (But could you go easy on the lipstick next time)? ;)
Sister went home late yesterday afternoon. Let's hope all goes well for her there. The initial response was increased stress, but that's somewhat expected with a move. She is up to speaking on the phone, so talks with Herself every evening.
Herself is trying to work out her work schedule so she can return.
Thank you all for your continued support and compassion as we travel this journey together. I never, ever thought our feet would be on this road, but then so many have traveled before, why would we not end up here.
I can't stop thinking of our Trish, and hoping that her going was peaceful. I miss her cheer and positive nature...
When my grandfather was deteriorating, I remember my uncle saying, "God forgive me, but sometimes I pray selfish prayers." I didn't understand that for a long time. I don't think it's selfish to want those you love to be at peace, to not be in pain. Bless her.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 322735, member: 43
Thank you, Becca. It is a very hard time, to say otherwise is a blatant falsehood. But we must travel this road, we have no choice. We'll take one step along it, at a time and treasure the memories we are allowed along the way.
Every step you take, I'm taking them with you, I can't be there beside you but I am in thought
If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
