I'm Falling

You know those dreams where you think you are falling and you are waiting to hit the ground but you wake up and everything is fine. That is my life right now.

Dad had a very bad night and he is in critical care. Mom was crying trying to tell me and asked to call my brother and sister. I called my brother but when I went to call my sister her husband answers. My sister was just taken to the hospital in extreme pain. He was working on getting child care for their 6 yr. old. Of course I offered.

My sister will be in a few days. She is on morphine for the pain and something for the infection. She has an intestine problem.

I will me a mom of a kindergartener for a few days. That life was over 14 years ago.

I know I'm going to wake up soon and God will not let me fall all the way to the bottom. Even when things are bad they always do get better. I am so relieved God will carry all this for me. God will walk, speak and even think for me. I know with my stress I forget things but I know with out a doubt God will not let me forget what is important.

Thank you for your prayers and listening to me ramble.

You have a lot to deal with right now. I'll be praying for all of you.

It sounds like it is one of those times when there is more than we can possibly handle apart from God's grace. I pray that He will give you grace and strength for all you must do. And I pray you will get one of those weekends to just relax very soon.

Sweetie, I am asking God to bless you with extra strength. I love you, praying for your dear dad.

Praying for you and your family. I have had a few of those falling feelings lately. Wondering when I will wake up is also a feeling.
Please keep us updated on your sister and your Dad.
And I will be praying for you as your plate is so full.
