Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing frighten you
All things are passing
God alone does not change
Patience achieves everything
Whoever has God lacks nothing
God alone suffices - St. Teresa
The words above certainly speak to me, and I will be reading them frequently in the months ahead.
I want to thank ALL of you who have sent your love and wishes to me these past few days. Believe me, I do feel your collective arms around me. To think that I would receive such support from all across the country would have been inconcievable just a few years ago. Your friendships mean so much to me now. The phone never stops ringing, and the house is grand central station. My kitchen counters are loaded down with food. My kids are here, and they are taking great care of me. My mind is so adled, I just tell them to make all the plans, just make sure I'm in the car with them if they go somewhere. I have bronchitis, so went to the doctor yesterday morning. The cough syrup makes me very drousy and rummy, so I sleep, which is good. On the way home from the doc's, I made my son stop at the local furniture store and I bought myself a new glider chair. I have wanted one forever. It will be delivered next week.
Now, a few thoughts, I know there are no answers for, I'm just putting them down because writing helps.
Why did he leave me? Why now? This man who brightened the days and lives of so many people, but mostly mine. Was his job here on earth done? I know he will be an exceptional angel. He loves doing for others. I can just suppose God needed him for other work, and knows I am strong enough to carry on here on earth. I don't feel that strong right now, but I know I am.
