A Few Days Away
I left my husband and children.
Not forever....just for a few days. I decided to leave my home in Charlotte, NC and head about 35 minutes south to Rock Hill, SC to visit my mom. It was just too hard for me to stay away. She's been very sick and in a lot of pain. I'm so thankful to be here. I am just treasuring my time with her. Right now my mom, Princess (my dog), Maggie (her dog), and I are laying on the bed watching Oprah. Us girls are just chillin'! I don't remember the last time I just spent some quiet time "chillin" with my mom. It just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling!
As for mom, she's still in pain, but MUCH better. She has a PT scan tomorrow. I'm going to stay here until Friday morning.
Everyone at home (Jeff and kids) and everyone at work (LeAnn and company) were just so supportive for me to get away. I left 4 very active kids at home. My husband and his parents are all tag teaming to do my job (carpool, ortodontist, dance class, baseball practice, supper). And at work, Proverbs 31 Ministries, they insisted I come to see my mom. Nevermind the fact that means someone else has to fill in for me. Lynn even told me that everytime the phone rings at the office while I'm gone, she prays for my mom. How sweet is that???? I have been able to walk away from my normal life without a worry in the world so that I can focus on my beautiful mother. I am so grateful for that.
Life is precious that's for sure. And so are the people we get to share life with. Pictured above is a picture I took just today of me and my mom, who is so precious to me, especially now.
