buy propecia from usa That’s a lot of emotion to process and quite frankly, I’m not doing that great with it! Daddy’s death came at the end of a confusing, rapid, unexpected season of confusion and declining health that left all of us reeling. My summer consisted of trip after trip to south Arkansas, every time finding him weaker and weaker, more and more confused.
I am grateful and will always treasure one of the visits. We sat alone on a rainy afternoon in his room at the nursing home. He had fallen, was dehydrated and not expected to live. I found a station on his fuzzy television that played worship music. You know those stations that show scripture and nature scenes along with the music? The presence of the Lord was so strong that afternoon! Daddy was more alert than he had been in many days. We talked about lots of things. I was able to tell him how much I loved him, how much I respected him, and how grateful I was for him. I will cherish that afternoon forever.
Another visit, just days before he passed away, my daughter who is expecting her first baby in December, joined me. Daddy was not very alert. We would wake him from time to time to speak to him but he would fall back to sleep quickly. Sitting in his room, feeling this new life kick inside my daughter’s tummy while watching my Daddy slip from this life is really hard to get my mind around.
As family and friends gathered to say our good byes to Daddy, I was again reminded of how precious and fragile life is.
I am so grateful for the ways precious friends have loved me and mine in so many ways! I am encouraged to love deeper and with more abandon.
As we approach this Thanksgiving season, I will embrace the joy that surrounds me! I will hold these precious grand babies a little closer, breathe deeply that newborn smell, enjoy the life that is bursting to the brim around me, always moving forward!
