Giving Care God’s Way


I had been a giver of care to my Mama for fifteen years until she left this earth to be with the LORD on January 30, 2013.  Mama was a special lady.  She became a widow at age 46 and had three young girls to raise.  We were 12, 10, and 7 when Daddy died of Pancreatic cancer in 1960.  She was strong.  She could be stubborn!  She was a sports fan, especially to her Chicago and San Diego teams, both baseball and football.  She was loving and lovable.  She was a wonderful Navy wife, doctor’s wife, mother, friend to many, and especially to this daughter as I aged.  Mama had diabetes, becoming insulin dependent at age 85.  She also had dementia which took her (and me) on many-a-roller-coaster-ride for better than those fifteen years.

Where Am I?

On this page of my blog, I am linking the posts I have written for Being Woven of my experiences of giving care to Mama.  I will also link up a series I wrote, beginning July 18, 2014, for Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood.
