Yes time seems to zip by when we are busy with other things. :-)
Am so glad Bill can be tempted to eat now and again. I do hope he will make the plans he needs to, but keep in mind that sometimes it just will not get done ... then you will do what you must. I pray you are given the strength do do so. I am sure it is not easy for you, and it sounds frustrating.

I will be thinking of you on Tuesday and praying that the surgeon can give you some good news.

You are so good to just sit and be with Bill during this time, I can only imagine that he really needs you to do that for him. What a blessing you are.

You are living through a "special season." Another time will come soon enough.

I am not a very wise person so I seek the wisdom given us in the scriptures.

Tonight I got to thinking about Ecclesiastes and what Solomon had to say.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-15
1 There is a time for everything,
and everything on earth has its special season.
2 There is a time to be born
and a time to die.
There is a time to plant
and a time to pull up plants.
3 There is a time to kill
and a time to heal.
There is a time to destroy
and a time to build.
4 There is a time to cry
and a time to laugh.
There is a time to be sad
and a time to dance.
5 There is a time to throw away stones
and a time to gather them.
There is a time to hug
and a time not to hug.
6 There is a time to look for something
and a time to stop looking for it.
There is a time to keep things
and a time to throw things away.
7 There is a time to tear apart
and a time to sew together.
There is a time to be silent
and a time to speak.
8 There is a time to love
and a time to hate.
There is a time for war
and a time for peace.

14 I know that everything God does will continue forever.
People cannot add anything to what God has done, and they cannot take anything away from it. (NLT)

15Whatever was, is.
Whatever will be, is.
That’s how it always is with God. (MSG)

May you be comforted to know that in this time you have done for him what you would want done for yourself.

I am sorry to hear that things have been rough for you. Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

Rough roads often lead to the most beautiful views. Hopefully you will be able to pass through the difficult passages
and come out of it with fond memories and a new way of looking at life. I don't need to tell you that life is fleeting, we need to make it good use of our time together while we can. Make some good memories. AND NO MURDER Whistling

Thinking of you often and praying for your comfort and wisdom. Group hug
