What a week this has been!
It started out as a fun visit from these guys and their parents. Their dad was a little stressed by the time they left, and we ended up having a few hurtful words that hurt both our feelings. Sometimes I think I must be a horrible person.
Then this happened. We were notified that one of our family members was killed in the plane crash. I had just met these people a couple months ago. (hubby's cousins) Such a sad day.
On the same day, we found out that another cousin would be having surgery for colon cancer this week. My mom died of colon cancer this month, two years ago. My emotions have been all over the place.
A friend of the family , who is very ill, physically and mentally, was found in a ditch this week, naked, without his artificial leg, and confused. He is still in the hospital.
Another friend who is going through chemo treatments for bladder cancer, posted a selfie on Facebook this week. It made me so sad. She looks so sick.
I have made an appointment for my dad, to have his long time faithful companion, Missy, put to sleep on Monday. She is old, she has gone blind and deaf, is barely eating enough to keep her alive, and she sleeps outside in the hot garage. I'm sure she is miserable. This will happen on Monday. I've never been a part of having an animal put to sleep.
We reconnected with old friends last week, which ended up bringing up a bad memory for all. Funny how we remember the 'bad' more than all the 'good'.
I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm just documenting the week, trying to sort out some feelings.
God has always been and is still in control. This I know.
