|Waiting to see what the next tide will bring......|
You see, my stepfather was diagnosed with leukemia in March, and I have been helping a little. And now my brother has been diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. It's a bit overwhelming. I'm going up to Stratton in a couple of hours to hug my mother and brother and stepfather and sister-in-law and niece. We'll talk, we'll catch up, we'll eat together, we'll pause and sigh. Maybe we'll cry a little, but we'll probably tease and laugh and tell stories. Some of us will pray. I hope some of us will pray together. I hope we'll sing hymns together to help us remember God's grace and truth. We'll probably phone various other people. And make plans. And wonder what the future holds. And maybe I'll blog some of it, but I probably won't for a while anyway.
I will wonder what you all are blogging about. I'll check in on ThimbleAnna who is also caring for loved ones who are ailing. So, I'll be back when it feels right.
