To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

What's So Funny?

Mom was in a great mood yesterday. She helped me put her cloths on by lifting her arms when I asked which she just stopped doing the last month. And she laughed at almost everything instead of being mad or yelling. It has been months or close to a year since she laughed. I don't know what to think. She talked to me kind of normal. I could not understand all she said but that is okay. I did not cry once yesterday. In fact I smiled a lot.
When I would ask her to take a bite of food she would say Why. That is really great for us.LOL!
When I changed her she went back to the yelling but I think part might be pain and the other is she can't understand what I am doing down there. Even when I tell her over and over. I would yell too.


  1. Karen, I've spent some time reading your blog posts and I feel so humbled by your loyalty and love for your mom. You should be the one to write a book! It touches my heart that you have offered to pray for me. I have written your name on my prayer list. God bless you.

  2. Hi Karen
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really admire you for looking after your mom. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you. You deserve a big reward!!
