4:00 AM

Sleep has been my friend lately

This morning not so much.

So much life is happening around me and when my eyes popped open at 4:00AM the wheels started turning

Yesterday we celebrated my sweet friends birthday. I’m honored to have such a wonderful group of people in my life. So much laughter and life has been spent. Not to say that it’s not hard sometimes. The story of our friendship is a good one. Ask me about it sometime.

This morning begins a new chapter in the life of my father in law. He has always lived on his own home with his very loved dog. In recent weeks he has fallen a few times and the decision was made for him by medical professionals that it’s time for him to not live alone anymore. He will transition to an assisted living home. Steve will drive to Bradenton to pack up his belongings and move him to his new home. To say it’s a “change” is a dramatic understatement. While the siblings agree it necessary does not mean it’s without tears and hurt. This gentle giant of a man now frail and unable to care for himself, needing help to walk and had to give up his beloved pet.

We all age

We will all one day need help

I pray on this day for his heart as he begins this new life.

The Cancer is back.

A beautiful woman who joins us every Tuesday for Coffee Hour.

A mother

A daughter

A fun, spunky, beautiful woman whom I call friend.

How does one hear news that’s it’s back for the third time?

I have no idea

Immediately my mind when to the story of Moses when Aaron and Hur held up his arms when he couldn’t hold them up for himself.

I don’t know what exactly that means for my sweet sweet friend but I WILL be an arm holder.


Steve is gone all day today moving his Dad and I had a list a mile long to get done today. While the list is still a “thing,” my 4AM wake up might change things up a little.

I might want to spend more time with little men today instead of working.

I might enjoy a stroll through a garden center instead of splattering myself with paint.

Life is sometimes hard and I’m feeling heavy today for mine.

God is Good all the time

Enjoy your Saturday
