Yes God is so very good isn’t He. Let me explain…
With everything that has happened in the last few months there are still blessings to be had. Mom has passed and I have had some tough days almost immediately. About a week later was her birthday and then Mother’s Day. It’s been a hard few months. My son and his wife are expecting and their due date was May 19th. My daughter in law started having high blood pressure, so they admitted her to keep a close watch on her. They decided to induce. Their sweet baby boy was born in the very early hours of Mother’s Day. What a blessing.
No way can you top Mother’s Day with anything else. Meet my handsome and very precious grandson, Baylor. I’m so in love! God took a holiday that would have been very tearful and gave us a brand new reason to celebrate and give thanks! In other areas, dad yet again has been sent to the ER. He was very aggressive, kicking and punching a few residents. The ER basically just let him sleep and did not run any tests. They sent him back to his facility. The nurse was going to try to get him to give her a urine specimen so it could be tested for a UTI.
We are still having our own ups and downs dealing with the loss of Mom. Some days are great. Others not so much. I’ve had a few dreams with her in them. I have recently gotten her life insurance in and have paid her bill at the funeral home. I have also gone to Probate court to handle her affairs and file her will.
Sometimes I will get ticked off easily over little things it seems. Thank God for my amazing husband, Carl. Somehow he knows just what to say or do to help me out. He is a true blessing. Then my sweet new grandbaby, Baylor, makes all seem right with the world.
So now our next step will be to pick out and pay for a headstone to mark Mom’s grave. One that will have both Mom and Dad’s name on it so later all we will have to do is get dad’s date of death engraved on it. I will let you know how that goes at a later date.
So until next time, make memories!
