Update on Mom

Mom_NOLA_2013
With Mom in NOLA – not this year but good memories!

Hard to believe we are four months into Mom’s battle with cancer. She has many pretty good days, a lot of okay days and thankfully only an occasional bad day.

She is blessed to have so many good friends. Hardly a day goes by without someone dropping by to spend a few minutes with her. And she loves receiving all the calls, cards and flowers that consistently arrive.

My sister’s 16-year old fur baby Daisy is here with us now. She keeps a close eye on Mom too.  Mom’s not a big dog lover but Daisy certainly has grown on her and it cracks me up when I hear the two of them talking.

I continue to be in awe of Mom’s strength and her faith. I am honored to get to spend this time at her side and blessed that I have siblings and a sister-in-law to share this journey with.  I am passing the baton over to them for a few weeks as I head back to Atlanta today.

My heart remains in two places.
