Thoughts about life.
They say God never give us more than we can handle, but sometimes its hard to discern the whys and where fores of what happens on a daily basis. The ups and downs turn into a roller coaster filled with uncertainities , disappointments, sorrow, sometimes happiness and joy.
We take many things for granted and they become oommon place to us.
Nothing in life is for certain except the love of our Lord and the dawn of each new day,AND in some distant future that dawn may not exist any more if things don't change in this world we live in.
The disaster in Haiti shocked the world! In seconds many lives were lost! A city teaming with life was utterly destroyed! Daily the drama unfolds as we watch. The earth quake could have happened anywhere. I'm sure we are all glad it wasn't here in our country. Our hearts and prayers go out to those in need !
We all need to make the most of each day and fill it with good things.
Let the ones you care about know that you love them . Lend a helping hand to a neighbor or friend. Try to attain goals that you have put off. ONE NEVER KNOWS WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING. We're here one moment, gone the next! Savor life to the fullest while you can.
Let Gods light guide you in all ways and give you peace and contentment.
I am living with my own personal battle. My husband's health is declining a little at a time. The valve in his heart is slowly closing . The Doctors say his chances of surviving the replacement of two heart valves are not good at all and they feel he won't live through the surgery. He tires easily and can not do much at all. The dementia is also getting worse. At times he lashes out in anger for no apparent reason. We know he can't help it and we try not to upset or argue with him. Its hard to live with him . I just walk away and do something else. The anger is gone in seconds and then he feels bad about it afterwards. I've seen this happen to others, so i'm aware of whats happening to him. My own memory is still quite good , but I do have my days when I foget things. I try to take them in stried and remain strong. I have to because he needs and depends on me. In the back of my mind I know the Alzheimers is there slowly eating away at my (our) brain. I pray a cure will soon be found for everyone who has this terrible illness!We are alive and have many blessings to be thankful for.
Life goes on! We find little things to make it more enjoyable and complete, taking each day as it comes.
God Bless all of you ,,,MaryGrace

|our blessings are what we perceive, God has granted us choices and it seems as if some choose not to. keeping good spirits and making each day count is what life is all about. we cant change things, but we can change our perception. your spirit is so good and i have all the admirations for you, momma was a gentle soul also.
love and hugs always

|The moment, this golden second is all that matters.
As we see in the likes of Haiti.
Yet modern medicine forever changes on a daily basis.
I'm sorry to tell you Mary, but you ain't going nowhere until Jesus says, yup, ok, you have completed your tasks, you can come off the pilgrims path and Welcome home.
At the mo' dad is ill with heart failure, a mere 86, and mum is half paralysed with a stroke, but she is much younger at 81. But I know God still has stuff for them to do.
Remain in peace and let Jesus decide when he needs you guys.

How so sadly true, MaryGrace, and our thoughts and prayers remain with you and your husband.

|Sorry to hear your husband's health is declining; but glad you are there for him, even in the midst of your own Alzheimer's battle! Know you both are ever in my prayers/thoughts! And yet compared to many people (such as those in Haiti and other places), you two are very blessed! Continue to lean on Him and count your blessings! Well done, MG!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
