Your Dying Spouse 433 - A Caregiver's Wonderings {#adventphoto2017}

Did Mary wonder about what was in store for her, and for her child?

She knew the outline, of course, but did she wonder about the specifics?

Of course she did. She was human, after all. But wondering was, in the end, futile, because it only took away from today.

Same for the caregiver. You can read the prognosis for your husband or wife, and imagine the mileposts of illness that must be passed.

But that's buying heartache ahead of time.

Musical accompaniment is I Wonder As I Wander, from The Cambridge Singers.

Today's keyword for Advent-Photo-A-Day is wonder.

Please pardon my slow response to comments. I'm doing my best, and your comments are really precious to me.

I'm really not doing well at all.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback in a few days!

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

I have another blog, "Starting The Day With Grace". The focus is a grace quote from someone you might not expect (like, say Mick Jagger) and a short commentary. I hope you'll join me.

Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.


And marley has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

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.
