This Will Brighten Your Day: 680

Saturday, April 19, 2014







More tomorrow ...

I spoke with my sister last night and the prognosis for my brother-in-law isn't good. The brain cancer is very aggressive and they give him 3 weeks to 2 months to live. My sister (and the rest of my family) live 1500 miles from me, so I asked her if she wanted me to come now, but she'd rather I be there when he passes for the funeral. (Airfare is very expensive and I can't make the trip twice in such a short time.) She has three grown children that live very close by, so she's not alone during this time. Thank God for telephones so I can show support in some way.

    Laura, I'm so sorry. My mom went within days of finding out she had primary liver cancer. I was blessed to be with her at the time.

I know it is very hard for your sister right now, but she is not alone. Besides her children, God is always there to lean on. I'll be praying for a peaceful passing for your BIL, as God surrounds your family with that "Peace that defies all understanding".

Love you, Ramona

    Laura, you are so sweet to think of us and continue to post pictures for our enjoyment. My heart goes out to you, your sister, brother-in-law and all the family. As others have mentioned too, I also know how hard it is to be far away from a dying loved one. I'm so glad your sister and BIL have their children close enough to be there and supportive. I'm continuing to keep you all in prayer. I pray also that your loved ones all know Christ personally, so that you have the comfort of knowing you'll see each other again....in Heaven.

    I know how hard it is to live so far away at a time like this. My mom is in the final stages of Alzheimer's and I can only afford to go down to see her once a month. I was calling her every day to check on her but now that she no longer has use of her arms she can't answer her phone. I check with her nurse to see how she's doing or try to call when I know someone is in her room to help her but, I miss getting to talk to her every day.

My prayers are with your sister's family as well as with you. God bless and be with all of you.

More tomorrow ...

I wasn't planning on that extra blog last night, but had to do something to occupy my mind. My brother-in-law was just diagnosed with brain cancer and my head was reeling. He's been sick for a few years with COPD, now this. My sister is beside herself. So thanks for taking time to read the blog and enjoy the photos.
