Where did Linda go?

#lanternofsaybrook

I can not stress enough how much I appreciated those of you that reached out to me to see what happened to me.  Once again, proving being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is not just about rubber and ink.

The last couple weeks have been an emotional stressful time, with the 5th anniversary of Jay's passing.  But then my Mom's health started to decline very fast.

I spent five days with her.  She has had dementia for a couple years, and it became very complicated with numerous falls.  But by the grace of God, she broke nothing and kept bouncing back.  She is a true fighter.

It became very clear that she could not live by herself any longer.  So I had to make a very difficult situation, and place her in an assistant living home.  

The hard part was I had to leave her at the door, not knowing how she would feel on the other side of that door.  I know many of you have been experiencing situations with your love ones, whether at a home or the hospital. So mentally draining to leave them when they need you the most. 

She is a very caring environment at The Lantern of Saybrook.  The staff there has so been so kind to not only by keeping me informed on what is going on with Mom but to check on me.  that means so much.

With that being said, I need to continue to be off the grid for at least another week.  I will pop on, if I can get my head clear.  I have so much to do to take care of my mom's things.

I see God's hand so clearly in all that has happened the last month, and I know He will continue to strength and guide me through all that needs to be done.  

Thanks for your patience.  If you have any questions, I am only an e-mail or call away.

Thanks so much for everyone's kind words, encouragement, and prayers. I so appreciate.

So sorry you’ve been having a stressful time. I’d imagine the virus and quarantines made the necessary decision to move your mom into assisted living even more stressful. I pray for you both during this hard transition time. Hugs to you.

Thanks so much for your kind words. It was so great to go to bed last night and not to have one eye open.

Dear Linda, that is a hard but courageous thing you've done for your mom. She'll be well-looked after and will meet new friends and have fun activities there. May God bless you and your mom!
