Thinking of Mom

My mom is in the middle of some medical issues. She's far away, and so are my sisters, which has resulted in my feeling rather lonely and helpless at the moment. I'm staying in touch via phone calls and text messages, but it's not the same as being there in person to take charge and boss people around, which is how I typically cope with stressful situations.

She's scheduled to undergo a procedure this morning, so I'll be spending my day alternating between prayer sessions and panic attacks. My daughters can expect lots of random hugs for the next 24 hours, with me holding them extra tight. It's the next best thing to organizing everyone's schedule and yelling instructions.

Get well, Mom. That's an order!



Dinner last night: sour cream enchiladas, refried beans, corn

I loved that line about between prayer sessions and panic attacks. Take care of yourself too.

Sometimes it sucks to live far away from family. At least there are phones and the internet to stay in touch. I hope your mom feels better soon.
