So tired I don't know what my name is

Mom had emergency open heart surg on tues. We went in for a heart cath and ended up in surg about 2 hrs. later. It is really hard being on this side of the bed....HA HA

She is doing great and will be going home tomorrow. Please pray that I have patience and understanding of what she is going through. She is 67 yrs old and NEVER had any surg. so this has come as quite a shock for her.

Claire doesn't seem to understand that I can't be here all the time. She has become VERY needy and cries if I go near the door. I must remember to take care of myself or I can't take care of anyone.

Thanks for listening

OMG, I was in Brazil and missed this. I hope all is well with your Mom.

Here's to a healthy, happy new year for all.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
