This is the day that the Lord has made~ Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

I am rejoicing today because God is faithful~ I am choosing to rejoice because He is meeting our needs. Yesterday I had a meeting for grandma's care and little things that are important will be taken care of~ little things like her getting someone to help her drink....making sure that she is dressed for the day no matter what...little things like being fed and told to open ...close ....chew and swallow. Things that so many take for granted~ After the meeting I spent time with her and I am so thankful that she still remembers me. She is bedridden now but her spirit is still there...I can still see grandma behind those eyes that are on some days cannot focus clearly. She is still with me and for that I am so grateful to my Lord. She is expressing being lonely and this does sadden me because no one will visit...too hard they say to see...heartbreaking not for them but for grandma~ No one should have to be alone. So I visit as does our family and my aunt and she knows she is loved. Isn't that what is right and honor a woman who was always faithful and continues to be so as she lays there and prays. I chosen to rejoice today in grandma and her life.

Oh Vikki.... I'm so touched by your love and compassion for your grandmother. Your grandmother must have been a very strong influence in your life, and it's so touching to read of your devotion to her......I know she must feel your love in her heart each time she sees you!!!
I'm so glad that she still recognizes you.... that's a real plus.
God is good!

Vikki, you have chosen the better way, and oh, to be that lonely woman in need and be so cheered up by a visit from you. It is a hard and busy time for you and it must seem as if there is no respite...but do not be weary of doing good, God will give you the strength.

Speaking of strength, how are YOU doing?
