i thought today photos... above the hymn sheet for St Paul's Cathedral... as aforementioned the other day...

the beautiful silk bookmark....


the Palm sunday cross and the smaller reed one...

***********************

another meeting this morning at the hospital with Mom, district nurses, health visitor and discharge nurse... more of the same talk as yesterday, but saying they as yet do not have the funding sorted out nor people to cover the four visits needed every day, and the problems that could arise if Mom needed someone just after they had gone and would not be back for another four hours...

so we were both left confused by this, Mom does not want to wait in hospital for the care package to get sorted out, but cannot come home if it is not, so other option in the offing Mom has been saying no too, a care home, but then after everyone had gone she said she might consider it... so i have told her nurse... but then Mom may change her mind again, and i am more at a loss than before as to what where and when... Mom is sometimes positive about all this and then you see she is just... not....

Beautiful beautiful pictures as always-- but these, even moreso. Your mom's body is dying, but she herself never will. She will go on and on, and she, like we all, is eagerly Awaited on the other side of the veil. That doesn't help a bit, I know, and I'm so sorry. I am holding all of you in prayer, which also doesn't much help, so let me say I think right now is a good time for you both to simply pray --to hand over the logistics to Him, and see what comes forth.

Marian, her indecision may also be a result of her meds. Ultimately, a decision will have to be made...and you may be the one to have to make it. Praying for you both, as always. Hugs to you.

PS the reed cross seems to be just the palms from Palm Sunday, cut in such a way as to form a cross. I'm sure you'll cherish all these things. I have no doubt that these symbols are a sign that you are not alone. Trust.
