Mama

I am sure that anybody reading this blog knows that my mama is in the last stage of Alzheimers.  She has been in the nursing home almost 9 years now.  She cannot communicate at all and is mostly a fetal position.  I saw her today... it is heartbreaking and very hard to see her like this.  I have been praying for awhile now that God would take her on home.  I know that sounds wrong but I do not think it is.  She has absolutely no quality of life.  We are singing a song Sunday morning that we were rehearsing in choir tonight..."Bow the Knee"... it says "when you don't understand, the purpose of His plan, in the presence of the King, bow the knee.  Well, I sure do not understand His purpose in my mama being in the condition she is in but I do trust Him and I know that he loves mama even more than we do. I came home after seeing her and searched for a old video just so I could hear her voice and see her smile. I miss her smile and her laugh so much.

 If you feel like it is something you can do, would you please pray with me that God would take mama to heaven at any minute!  I would be most grateful... also pray for my sister Becky and me as we continue to go visit mama.

I know this isn't my normal type of blog post.. hope you all understand.

Much love,
Martha
