Updates on Life

Thursday, November 05, 2009

A friend will be passing away today. He chose today. He will be turning off the respirator which has kept him alive for many yrs. I celebrate his life today. He had a party last weekend and invited his friends to come and say their goodbyes. How would you like to do that? you get the chance to say I Love you to those you love! He has lived a good life but has had many many health problems in the last several months. He had ALS. My dad had this as well, and passed in 1996.

Yesterday was the 2nd yr anniversary of my Mom's passing. I remember her with many happy memories and all the things she had taught me while here with us. I celebrate her life! She lived a long life of 78 yrs and helped so many other along the way. I hope my family and friends can say that about me when my time has come as well.

An undate on my father in law who had a brain tumor removed last month. He is doing well. I went down to Georgia to visit him the weekend after his surgery. He went home from the Hospital after 4 days! My mother in law called it "drive in brain surgery!" He did have a small set back with an infection after a couple weeks. He went back to the hospital for a few days , got treatment and has now returned home to complete his recovery. He was soo soo happy we came to see him after his surgery. He told us how much he loved us. He also told me how good he thought I was for his son! How cool is that! A lot of people have troubles with their inlaws , not me! I love them dearly!

Life goes on, I need to work harder on getting healthy for myself. Another strange thing happend last week. My Easter Lily bloomed ! I thought those only bloomed in the spring or summer? My bloomed again on Halloween! Just a reminder of all the beauty that God has given us in our lives. May everyone have a Blessed Day! Pam

    Sweetie - there will be nothing but love and good words about you after you pass however most important - you are loved, adored and needed on this earth now to share the goodness in your heart with everyone who's life you have touched. I can't think of anyone who is a better friend than you.

    Sorry to hear about your friend - that must have been a hard decision to make turning off your own life support. We will keep your friend, family as well as yourself in our prayers.

    Love you lifetime friend, this lifetime and the one we will shae together with the Lord our Savior above.
