No Time For Blogging (pt.1)

October 12, 2012

As anyone who is involved in the depths of the Alzheimer’s World knows, there is so much more to our roles, than just supporting our loved one’s mental state, and hoping to bring some joy and purpose into their daily world. We are deeply immersed in handling their personal needs, as well as medical and legal issues.  We neglect our personal lives, our own schedules, and our own health.  Which is where I have been totally immersed the last couple of months. I have been getting a firsthand crash course in the real estate world of foreclosure, and short sale of my mother’s home. (I have faith that a closing date will be coming very soon, and that this chapter of chaos will  be behind me.)  The endless hours of paperwork and phone calls with bankers, lawyers and real estate agents have taken a huge toll on my own mental and physical health.  There is so much more to write about on this topic, however, time is something that escapes me. There will be a part 2 coming  another day.

I found the following words by another blogger and felt it a fitting addition to this post:

“FAITH….is living blind, not living with the pieces all in place.  It’s trusting the Lord and believing that He’s got our back.  He knows our needs and has a plan for our lives”……a partial excerpt from farmgirlpaints.blogspot.com, as found in “Artful Blogging” magazine.

  1. Honey, you said it to my heart. Thank you. What you say applies to all types of care taking– elderly and little children. 🙂 I just noticed I still have the medicare insurance information packet on my footstool. My mother is going to need more insurance this year. I’m the only one who can choose. Sometimes I want to run away from home. But what a gift–the opportunity to grow faith. Life is good! XxxOoo Thank you for sharing your wisdom!
