Weekends I spend with my mom and my husband at my mom’s home. She’s struggling with the horrid disease, cancer.
Doctor’s say she has days now.
She’s still alert and gets up each morning makes her bed, gets dressed and makes herself a cup of coffee. Mom is very independent and talks as if she will live on and on. She has strong faith in God and he does sustain her.
For three years my sister and I, as well as, other family members have taken turns being with her. We help her with her medicine and see to it that she’s not alone.
As I watch her grow weaker and time passes the emotions range from anger, to downright hysteria when I’m by myself, and no one else can see the tears…at other times I just break down and cry and don’t care who sees…it’s the most difficult time I’ve ever faced…
Sixty-one years I’ve enjoyed my mom and now that time is coming to a close.
Yes God is faithful and he keeps us through the process. No he never said life would be easy but he did say he’d go through it with us, and so we wait.
Psalm 91:14-16New King James Version (NKJV)
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
