It’s been a long, long time since I last wrote on here. I remember when I first came to the missions field and I had no lack of things to write about. I also didn’t have children or a husband and did have such a thing as “me time” outside of my work responsibilities. Somewhere along the way, it became work to carve out time for things I used to enjoy doing. I guess life is like that.
My Mom has been sick for a while now, although we only found out in June. It’s a job in itself to be caring for someone else, even when that someone is one whom you dearly love and it is actually a joy and a gift to be able to serve her in these ways. But that shift from daughter to caregiver is a hard switch. It’s a flip that is too abrupt and liable to cause whiplash if there was even time to think about it.
