Your DYing Spouse 176 - It's Harder To Watch

This is going to be a short post, because it's been a long day.

Barb's Dad suffered a major stroke today (July 3). Barb's family is shattered. Barb is being very brave and strong.

It is much harder to see others in pain than to bear it oneself. I ask your prayers. Please.

If you have a mment, I'd like to ask you to visit Change.org to consider a petition to free a 'death row dog' who has been separated from his family for ten months over a misunderstanding. Marley was saved from Afghanistan by a US serviceman; please help make sure this story doesn't end in needless tragedy!

If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. So sorry to hear about Barb's dad; I sensed something wrong, couldn't remember seeing a post in a couple of days...{{HUGS}} for you and Barb, and prayers for you both and the entire family. God be with you all in this time of need.

  2. Praying for your family in this difficult time. Also visited Marley's change.org page, and signed the petition. :)

  3. Praying for Barb, her dad, and family.

  4. Praying for Barb's dad and the family.

  5. Sending prayers for you and the whole family.

  6. Prayers for Barb, her dad, you, the pups. xo

  7. So sorry, Andrew. You and Barb, and Barb's dad, continue to be in my prayers.

  8. I'm sure it is much harder to see Barbara's emotional pain than to suffer through your own emotional and physical pain, Andrew. Praying for you all in this time of need.

  9. Yes, I have experienced this feeling of the pain of others being heavier than my own. So hard to watch a loved one suffer, and to feel helpless. Praying right now.
