Well, I went to the Doctor, and I have bronchitis!!!! and can you believe he told me to rest at the busiest time of the week, it's taken me 2 days to wrap presents and there isn't allot, I do so much then I am tired, and I rest or cat nap and do some more, not a good time to be sick but he gave me some kick butt antibiotic's and he gave tomorrow off, and I'm off Christmas eve, and Christmas day, so I'll be swell for work by Friday! I've been missing Gilbert so much, and I know he's in heaven having a grand'ol time, but this sweet gentle man made holidays so fun and memorable, holidays just haven't been the same, but I talk to him allot and that brings me some comfort, but this time of year the stupidist things make me cry, I may play like a hard butt, but in all reality, I am nothing more then a fat marshmellow inside. I saw a older fragile lady at the Doctor's office, her daughter brought her in, and she helped her mom to the lobby, and I could over hear her daughter crying and asking about certain guest home's and I looked at Larry and started crying "Whats wrong?" he asked, and I said " Larry, that daughter is going to have to put her momma in a guest home" "Well, she must not be able to care for her anymore" he whispered, I thought how sad, but she was doing what was best for her mom's health and well beinging I'm sure it had to be a very difficult thing for that daughter to decide to do, and I closed my eyes and asked to give her reassurance that all would be well, and to please take her heart ache away....I love the fact that I can talk to our Lord any where, any time and know he's heard me and that he loves me, and that sweet gentle older lady and her daughter.

I must tell you Annette, just this October we have had to put my mother in a Long Term Care Facility, it is the most difficult thing to do. We delayed, and delayed, but in the end we felt she was unsafe in her own bed. I thought my heart was going to burst that week. I don't think I have any tears left. And then, I went to visit and she said she didn't have time to spend with me, because she was having her nails done. I just about dropped dead. Of course I waited until her nails were dry, and we spent the remainder of the day together. She does not want to go back to her own home, which really surprised me. She is getting very used to the routine and loving the greenhouse, and community interaction. So it's not always the worst thing in the world. I'm comfortable that she is looked after, even when I can't get to her. Like today when travel, because of snow was impossible, I don't have to think "has she eaten, is she trying to cook, or has she fallen and is not answering the phone? all these questions are now much easier to answer. I know if I'm sick, my mother is looked after. And yes, I still hate the idea, but I'm starting to feel less horrible, as I see her enjoying the company of others, and not just me. P.S. I hope you feel better soon, and don't forget Christmas is not just one day, and those you love and love you will understand if you can't do everything you want to because you don't feel well. Have a Blessed Christmas.

No apology needed, Annette. I just thought I would offer you a possible explanation and one that someday you may need to consider, GOD forbid. Hope you are feeling better.

I am sorry you are missing Gilbert. Was that your husband? It is always os hard at the holidays because of the closness of families at this time of year and the special memories we have. I miss my Mother.

I can only imagien the horrible feeling of having to put your Mother in a home. I swore I would never do that but I was blessed in that way because my Mother was healthy and alert until the last day she was here with me.

Hugs
God Bless You my wonderful and dear friend
