Second Chances (Personal)

Hi all

Today makes two weeks that my mother has been in the hospital. I'm making preparations for her to move in with me whenever they finally release her, since it is clear that she is not capable of taking care of herself, certainly not right away and possibly never again. Your prayers have been appreciated. Continued prayers are also appreciated.

Take care & God bless

My mother came to live with my wife and me (and our newborn baby) when she was in the last stages of her cancer. We cared for her for seven months before she passed away. I know what it's like to take in a parent.

My mom was loved by everyone and was a great lady, but still. Ask someone to take another in and the balking starts. Doesn't matter how nice they are. Too many simply don't want to be troubled. That's why people default to putting their parents into nursing homes.

However, one of the ways we honor our parents is the way we treat them in their final years, God will bless you, even if it is a hard adjustment for you to make.
