The Way Things Are................

Leonard's sister was here to visit last week .  She took this picture of him and I.  His heavy clothing hides the fact that he looks like a skeleton.  Each day is something different- some days he seems strong, other days he isn't.  Needless to say he's very negative about everything - there's nothing I can do to make him laugh or even smile.  Each day I try to get out of the house for a bit to center myself and enjoy the peace and calm.

It was nice to see Lois and have her add her joy to our home.  I treasure these things more and more.  And most of all I rely on God to teach me and lead me along this path.        Diane

What a bitter-sweet time for you, Diane. A prayer, the thought of a hug sent your way. I so sorry.

I have you and Len in my prayers Diane, sickness can be such a robber of joy. God bless you my friend.

I am thinking of you and you are in my prayers dear friend. I am glad to read that you are able to get out and have just a little time for yourself. That is vital, when one is a caregiver. 'What a sweet photo Lois took of you!
much love....
