So Blessed

Dad and Mom
early 1948
a few months after they met
and before they married
We are so blessed that there was a bed at
Hospice House for Dad
I stayed overnight
his care has been beyond
Mom is not dealing
with reality too well right now
when she is with him she gets it
but once she comes home
she forgets
another sort of blessing
thanks so much for your kind
prayers and thoughts
it will be a true blessing when he passes
he has been in much pain
the past few days
during the middle of the night he
woke up and spoke
about his love for Mom
mumbled yes
but clear as a can be to my ears

I've been following your blog for a while but haven't commented. I'm so sorry for all the challenges you've been facing lately with both parents struggling. Blessings to you and to them. The photograph of your parents is what brought me to your blog to leave a comment. It touches my heart. There is such love and joy in their faces.
