How nice it was that you and Hannah were able to help out your mom.
Glad that you made it make safe and can now spend the night in your own beds!

Tammy S.

You were missed. :) How sweet that you were able to be a help and blessing. My grandma fell and broke her shoulder about a month ago, and my mom stepped in as her caregiver. My mom has also been helping out her inlaws as well, cooking food for her parents, and cleaning their house each week. Oh yeah, and homeschooling my younger sisters and brother. So I know she could use a break. Only thing, California is a loooong ways from Michigan! I may not be able to help out, but I pray for her! :)


What a precious daughter and granddaughter to minister in that way. I'm sure your service and encouragment were the greatest gift to your mother. As a nurse, I have a small glimpse into what it's like to be a full-time caregiver. Sometimes I come home completely exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally. And I only work three days a week and 12-14 hours a day! I can't imagine the tremendous energy and stamina required to be a 24/7 caregiver. I think God gives us the strength we need to do whatever He calls us to do. We can do all things because He strengthens us (Phil. 4:13). Thank you for being servants and ministers in His name. He is not unrighteousness to forget your work and labor of love (Heb. 6:10).


Glad to see you back, Deb! I know the Lord will bless you and Hannah richly for taking care of your mom!


Praise the Lord for a fruitful trip to help your Mom and a safe trip home. I'm sure it was hard to leave her. Sarah did a marvelous job posting on the blog while you were away. I'm not so sure how I felt about her leaving Scrabble out of the Thursday Thirteen. :-) I would love to get together to play with you, Deb, before we leave for Mississippi in January!


I will pray for your Mom and Dad. Hannah did a great job here!


Hi Deb,

I missed you while you were away . . . and now you are gone again! It is a great blessing to hear of your service to your Mum though, and I've really enjoyed hearing more from Sarah.
