Grieving is a process that I am finding to be hard~ each person does it in their own way. Many in the family have found destructive ways to grieve...it is very sad because I know that my father would not approve. Sadly; there are those who seem to think we should just move along...just forget and suppress our feelings. I am not one of them. I think of my father throughout the day~ and I miss him terribly but I remind myself that he is healthy again~ and that makes me happy to think of him...walking again and healthy again and with my grandparents. God's mercies to those of us who "believe" are evident in the little and the big. I am so thankful to be reminded that God loves us and is interested in all aspects of our lives. I spent the past eight days with Gabby, our youngest at the hospital. She woke up last Saturday with horrible pain and just like we thought it was her appendix...the doctor took it out and it not only ruptured but also caused and very bad infection in the incision. She was on very strong antibiotics...four of them! for these past eight days. God is good though~ the medications worked and now she is resting comfortably. Many wonder how I keep going..and I can tell you simply it is the grace of God. Pure and simple..without my Lord I would not be able to get up some days...My Lord is amazing~ He takes me through each and everyday; no matter what it might hold.
