Roller coaster continues...

Just a quick note...I go help my mom once a week. Shes blind.and had a massive heart attack 5 years ago..I help her take a shower and set her clothes out for the week...do her hair..I enjoy this time with her...then a phone call came in..I answered the phone...I never answer her phone...I will hand it to her...but I never answer it...Someone on the other end figured out who I was...it was my cousin, letting me know that her mom (my aunt) had passed away...we weren't close...but I had to break the news to my mom, I wanted to make sure she sat down first (she's rather frail)My point is.. I'm amazed when things happen that are meant-to-be. I was just glad I was there at that precise moment in time.

Oh Laurie...what can I say? I'm glad you were there too. You're right, sometimes there is a Guiding Hand in how we spend our days...

So sorry to hear about the loss of your aunt. I hope and pray your mom is ok.

What a lovely daughter you are to go over there and help her out every week.

I do believe that we have angels watching over us and they could have made sure you were there to help ease the news to your mom.

Hugs,
Joanne

Hi Little Miss,

My thoughts are with your mom and her family. And yep there always seem to be a reason!!

PS Thanks for the link. I found it before and that's what I used. I guess it's just a matter of waiting. Oh I was visiting with Peter Rabbit and he says that Rabbits like stawberries so much better the carrots :) :)

Dear Laurie -
I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt but so glad that you were there with you mom when the call came. God has a way of watching over our loved ones, doesn't He?

From the other comments, it appears your post really hit home with many of us. You were in the right place at the right time to help your mom through this news. I'm sorry for your loss; I know your mom is glad you were there with her when the news came.

I am amazed many times in my life at the timing of events that happen, like you were with that phone call. Thank you for sharing that story with us. God's timing is so reliable. How nice that your mother has you in her life. Your header picture is so adorable!!
