Yesterday morning I had the best conversation with my brother in awhile-he could share his feelings more openly about the hospital experience and how frightening it was. He said the problem was that there was somebody new coming in every time the door opened and he couldn’t remember why he was there so none of the long explanations about different tests and results registered. He said hospitals should have one person who stays nearby and explains all the parts of the puzzle until the picture is complete. He’s right-in a perfect world every patient should have a patient advocate.
I was thinking about Ben’s course being changed so drastically …and by default loved ones. We are all realizing that the fog might take awhile to dissipate.
But one thing we can choose is to keep moving even if clarity and solutions can’t be seen through the fog yet. At times like this we have to trust that happiness is still out there waiting for us.
We have to have faith that one day all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place and with that will come understanding that we wouldn’t be where we are now…had we not gone through these challenges and changes.
So until tomorrow May we look forward to the day the fog lifts, the light shines through and we can see clearly God’s design that brought us all here.
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
We had fun at Ben’s party-Libby came down and that just made his day. She brought wonderful gifts -even a harmonica he started playing. We are just so thankful for any rays of sunshine and gaze upward to the skies and our Creator for His blessings!
