Ups and downs, backwards and forward.
Highs and lows.
Joy and sorrow.
"Such is life." Words uttered many times by my dear mother.
At eighty-eight years old, she's experienced a lot in her life. But yesterday, with no warning, while walking back from the dining hall where she lives, her hip gave out. Such an unusual break that the local hospital in the city where she lives wasn't equipped to handle such a surgery.
Of course, my heart weighs a thousand pounds right now. Deep concern for her comfort as well as the emotional upheaval in my own heart knowing that this is not good.
Chances are great that I'll be away for a while. Your prayers would mean the world to me...Xo
