I posted yesterday about where I’ve been and what’s going on. Today I want to keep things very short and sweet.
I want to preach a little about our elderly relatives. Folks, we can not just have them sit “alone”, stay at home by them self “alone”, or if they are in a facility “alone”. We need to remember without them, we wouldn’t be here!
So many times we all get so wrapped up in our own lives, with work, children, fixing dinner, getting homework done, bath time, laundry, dishes, etc…Well, we all have such busy lives now a days. I understand how hard it is.
I wondered, fussed, cussed, ranted and raved about why, why would the Lord have me go to nursing school only to be out on disability six years later. Well, he knows what he is doing. I have been able to have the time to spend with all my parents (in-laws included!). I am blessed. I have a wonderful family, great siblings, and fabulous in-laws. Thank goodness we are all here together to help each other and Mom (Mom mom).
So, with all this being said, make the phone call to just say “hello, how are you?”. Stop by with a platter for dinner. Take them to lunch. Something. None of us know how long we will be here on earth. When the Lord calls us home, well we will go but in the mean time, don’t forget our elderly family members. They need company and the knowing that they are loved…
