THE VERY THOUGHT OF THEM (My family)

Newer Older

These are photos of why I am not on Flickr as much these days. My grandblessings! Their mom is sick with Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus. The lupus causes her the most problems right now. She has had so many operations to remove tumors caused by the lupus we have stopped counting. Some are easy to blast with ultra-sound. Others must be removed in day surgery.
My daughter has started taking this in stride. I DO NOT. We take care of her kids while she is in hospital or too sick to take them herself. Zoe's dad is on the road as a long haul truck driver. So he is not around to help much at all.
I love her and them. My life has been raising my kids and taking care of my hubby and doing church work for the Lord. However, when I was disabled, I could no longer do all the things I wanted to do.
Instead, the Lord in His infinite wisdom, set me down. He knew I would be needed by my daughter and grandkids. (On a lighter note, the last photo in this slideshow is me. I lost a good deal of weight over the last 4 months and it's showing. I still cannot bring myself to take a full on photo, so I shot myself looking into our gazing ball in the garden. )
"ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE CHRIST".
A paraphrase version of my Confirmation Bible verse. I have always lived by it and neither it nor HE have ever failed me.
If I am not here sometimes, this is why.
Have a blessed Monday and give someone you love a hug today. The future is unknown to us. Thanks, JJ

    Really beautiful, and thanks for sharing your heart
    with us. I knew a lot of it, but it never hurts to be
    reminded a friend needs your prayers.

    Love you,

    Beautiful! I went to see a few of my grandchildren that I have not seen since November. I had no idea it had been so long. Life has been rather hectic for the last couple of years.
