So I am thankful that today is Friday! I know it’s almost over but today was rough. I got my world rocked and the future is not certain.
Today I got some not so good news. My mom suffered a stroke this morning that has left her numb on her left side. She can’t really speak and the doctors don’t know if she will make a full recovery.
Days like today make your reality come into check. This reality is still sinking in. Losing a parent is not easy but it is a done deal. I have delt with that before. The problem is watching them suffer. Watching them struggle and not be able to help. That is what scares me.
My mom has had a lot of heath issues. The past five years have been a struggle. She lost her foot, has congestive heart failure and is depressed. Somehow through all that she still manages to get up every morning. She is strong.
Today I am feeling numb. I am scared. I am angry. I want my mom to feel better. I want her back. These next few weeks will be hard.
I ask for prayers for my family and for peace during this time
