I see that my last post was April 2, 2015, two days before Sunny's Mom passed away. Sometimes life has a way of moving us in directions that we never intended to go, but we have to head that way regardless.
A year ago, I may have run away if someone would've told me what the next few months would entail. I was still grieving my own Mom's passing. Then Sunny's Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I look back now and see how God graced me...us to be able to handle this extremely hard yet rewarding task of allowing her to die with dignity in her own home.
Her cancer was early stage, but combined with late-stage COPD and because of her age, she decided to forego any treatment and began Hospice at home. Other complications began in January which required us to be with her 24/7. (We lived conveniently around the corner.) My oldest daughter Chels who is 27, and I tag teamed staying with her. Our youngest, Grace, stayed with us and helped where she could. Sunny and I could not have honored her wishes to stay home had my daughters not helped. We are forever grateful for our beautiful girls! Sunny's sister came and stayed the last two weeks before she passed away which was extremely helpful as well.
Proverbs 3: 5,6 says:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
I guess we have a new understanding of the saying, "Going with the flow"!
It's All Good!
