Thankful Thursday - Strength

I am thankful this week …

For strength and presence of mind to help my mother in taking her various medications correctly. Also, keeping track of various appointments for doctor’s visits and laborotory tests. Along with my brother and sisters I am praying that we do not receive any serious news from a procedure scheduled in the next two weeks.

For imagination to create tasty and nutritious meals day after day.

For an ample collection of dishes, glassware, and other table setting wares to make attractive settings to keep mealtimes pleasant. My Mother really enjoys nice place settings.

For stamina and patience needed to repeat and explain things over and over.

For the promise in this Scripture text:

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
1 Cor. 12:9

I wish I could be there to give you a great big hug, and pray with you. I really do understand what you are going through. I was my mommas caregiver until she passed away in april of 2006. Bless you dear one, you and your mom are in my prayers.

There is something lovely about a nice table setting. I think we forget to go the extra mile sometimes but it does make a difference.

Great post of thanks. Being a caregiver is hard work ....let your love shine through. I help with my mom and some days it is hard. I am thankful to be able to help her...she took care of me so many years. Keep pressing on.
