Need Your Prayers

Bloggy friends, Saturday the family gathered to be by my father's side as he struggles to live in the Critical Care Unit at the hospital. I have a couple of weeks worth of posts that I preposted (like Old World Charm below), but I will not be able to answer via email or always publish your comments quickly. Please pray for us and leave you sweet comments. I'll try to update you about my dad. Big Hugs, Janean

Cindy said...

Janean..don't you worry your sweet heart about us in blogville.We will survive..and wait for you to come back!!
We will be lifting him and your family up in prayer!!
We went thru this with Walker's dad 3 1/2 yrs ago..it is so hard..yet nobody wants their love ones to stay and suffer.
In working with hospice years ago..I will tell you the patient NEEDS to know that it is okay to leave..that you will miss them..but you will be okay!1 I have seen many patients hang on till these words are spoken..then they just pass..so sweetly!!
You will know when the time is right..God will hold you in His arms..this is a promise!!
I will miss you..yet I know you will return..when you know it's okay for your soul.

Hugs..and much Prayer

Your friend..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham
