We just go from one issue to another it seems. Father-in-love went back to hospital from skilled care facility and my mother-in-love has had pneumonia. She ended up being admitted to hospital yesterday and we have both of them on the same floor. Rolled her over to see him today as they have been apart for ten days.
They have been married for 58 years. It was so sweet to see his face light up when she came in. I am certain he thinks not one nurse can take as good of care of him as his bride does. He doesn't like for company to leave so he keeps coming up with things to ask people to do for him. Sweet. I can't imagine how hard it would be to not see my husband - who by the way is such a remarkable son- for days at a time because we are both sick.
We are having some tough times right now, but are so reminded of God's grace over the last four months that we have been dealing with Gerald's illness. Now Judy is sick. It is so hard to think about your parent's aging and not being able to do what they could before. We have some tough days ahead but are trusting in God's provision. You won't waste a prayer on us, if you don't mind! I am so blessed to have married into such a precious family.
Their faith is a touchstone for all of us and I know that the Lord will bless them in their time of difficulty. He is good, faithful and strong.
Yay, tomorrow is Friday! Hope you have a great one.
