Keep Up The Faith

Today was an emotional day. We met my mom at her doctor's appointment. Her 6 week radiation and chemotherapy treatment will be done on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. Nothing bad happened today. It is just emotionally exhausting. I cannot pretend, that she is the same, as she was three months ago. I try to… Continue reading Keep Up The Faith

Replace Fear With Power, Love and a Sound Mind

In this morning's bible study, the leader asked if any of us had fear. Many of us raised our hands. It was interesting that we read about fear two days before Halloween. I didn't think about Halloween at all, as we read the scripture verses on fear. There are plenty of ways to be afraid… Continue reading Replace Fear With Power, Love and a Sound Mind

Love Is the Bond of Perfection

When things get tough, how do you handle yourself? Do you fight to control the situation? Or, are you like me? I just want to curl up with a blanket and sleep. That is how I felt this morning. Two months ago, my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4, Glioblastoma. She had surgery to remove… Continue reading Love Is the Bond of Perfection
