Amazing How God Works……

sunrise1We are still in St. Pete. They have moved my mother in law to Hospice. The care she is now receiving is a huge blessing and relief. I can’t say enough about the staff who cares for a person through the end of life process. This is our first experience with hospice, or end of life, it is all new to us. You experience a range of emotions including, but I am sure not limited to, scary, sad, anxious, relief, joy, it is amazing how many emotions you experience in the span of a few short hours.

We are on day 5 of our vigil, we see the process as it is unfolding, it is harder for my husband, of course. The experience is bringing us closer together than we have ever been……I guess that is how God intends it to be. It either tears you apart or drives you together.

This morning as I woke up I said “thank you “ to God and I asked Him to bring peace to the family as well as comfort, and again, speed of the process for my mother in law. IF it is His will, I know it will be done.

Then I walked out on the patio of our hotel room and took the above picture of the sunrise. God in His magnificent glory gives us this gift every morning, and for that I AM GRATEFUL!

Today I am grateful beyond measure!


Things I am Grateful For….


I am grateful for everything. These days that seems to be all I can say! Did you see my post yesterday,? The one with Charlie Brown and Snoopy… ” What if today, we were just grateful for everything”  that is how I feel. I want everyone to feel that way.

In the meantime I want to share a quote that covers what I am grateful for!

“For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food,

For love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
