New Day

I am amazed I slept as well as I did last night. Until 4 this morning I was out, then the mind wakes and starts "running". I do have coping techniques to stop this put it takes a while to settle. My mother is moving into a retirement community that is geared to the level of care each resident needs. For now, she will be living in a cottage for independent living. She made a comment yesterday about passing the torch to the next in line to take care of their parents and how hard it is for the parent to turn over the control but she is ready for me to take over now. (Now we all know what set me off) So, now I have a list two pages long that needs to be done before next Monday when the movers come; and, at the same time, trying to figure out a way to make her understand that she needs to making alot of these decisions. I really am not whining, just overwhelmed. No wonder my heart starts to pound, I can't breathe and my mind shuts down.

On the light side, I had a wonderful night with my Kelby on the floor by my side, waking me up at 7 this morning dancing because he is with his "Mommy" again. I miss putting my swimsuit on this morning and hunting for seaglass. I wanted to find a green piece.


  1. I have come here through your friend Andrea! This blogworld is a wonderful place. A place to find love, support, and encouragement and know you will be lifted up in prayer each and every day.

    Look forward to getting to know you and sharing your burdens

  2. Thank you...I am in awe of how fast a support system has shown up. I am looking forward to getting to know you too.

  3. Well, my seems you have many new friends storming the heavens on your behalf.

    There will be much time for you and I to find more sea glass and GOD is saving that special piece for you to find..."in HIS time!"

    Now you know why I love my bloggy friends so much. They love me "just the way I am."

    Love you,

  4. Hi!

    I am here at an invite from your friend Andrea. She is certainly a special lady!

    I can identify with feeling overwhelmed and will be lifting you in prayer today. I pray that your new endeavor here in the world of blogs will promote your healing and help you find your way to a place of wholeness!

    I have a blog called Glass House Ministries. Drop by and join the family!

    Hugs and prayers,

  5. Keeping you in my prayers today. One day at a time, or in some cases one hour at a time. I know this time in your life can seem overwhelming but there will come a point where you will look back and see it for what it is. An opportunity to grow!

    You are becoming a completely new and beautiful person and you can let it all out here in your blog. It becomes a great tool, because you can look back and see how you overcame these challenges and just how you did it.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. May you find the strength that comes from Him to overcome any trial that comes your way. God bless and may you have a wonderful rest of the week.
