Life Changes With Each View

They say there's a rhyme and reason for every season. Over the last few years we've been through many. Like many others struggles have hit us smack dab square in the face, many decisions have had to be made. This last 
decision is a hard one to make, the wolves have gotten bigger and louder, everything will soon be gone, only to wonder where we'll end up. Life is a scary adventure full of twists and turns only to be disappointed in our later years. I believe good things come to good people, I'm wondering why we were left out of the equation. I wish there was a quiet benefactor out there one who can step in and make things go smoothly, I wish there were magic pills for Mr. P so he could feel good more than one day at a time. If wishes only came true not only for us, but for many struggling the world would be a much better place. With these thoughts running through my mind, I ask for prayers and guidance. They say venting is good for the soul, I've done mine, wallowed in self pity for the moment, now it's time to pick myself up and get on with making the decision that's going to change our lives in so many ways.

Our home looking across the fresh cut hay field towards the lake.

Fast forward 2 days and you see the field has been racked and baled. Our view in the evenings while porch sitting enjoying simpler more quiet times.

Lynne, My heart ached reading your blog. I can almost feel your pain. I have been where you are and to this day, I am still haunted by what I should or could have done to have made my husband live a little longer had I not listened to the people who were running the hospice. But that was 4 years ago and I still feel the pain and I know exactly where you are coming from. My phone nos. 858 578 7085. Or you can email me and I will call you. /sometimes it helps to talk to someone who has been there. Please give me your phone nos. and i promise to call you. I care and I wish you well. Hang in there, there is life around the bend and it will be just as good for you. With my good thoughts and prayers for you and your family. Nenette West

I know how you feel - you go along and everything is fine and then there is a zinger.. So you have to change the direction you are going and remember all the good times. They say God never gives you more than you can take but sometimes you have to wonder, why me. Have faith - things will work out.
Lynne you are in my prayers.... Have a good weekend.

Never give up. I will be praying for you. Yarlette

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Yarlette, thanks so much for your visit and kind kind words. I'm so sorry for you loss, dealing with alzheimers is not easy, we just deal. My thoughts and prayers are with you as well. fondly ~lynne~

Pam said...

Lynne, I'm so sorry that you are going through difficult days and probably nights, too. So many of us have had a family member with altzheimers. It is a terrible disease. Please know that I'm praying for you and your dear hubby. Hugs, Pam

Lea said...

Sending my love and prayers to you today.
No words..... only prayers....

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Nenette, thank you darling, I'm sending prayers your way. fondly ~lynne~

Sheila said...

Lynn, I'm also so sorry about your days & nights of distress. Unless you have done it, no one knows the stress that a caregiver goes through caring for their loved one. Don't be afraid to reach out for help. My mother-in-law suffered from Alzheimer's & my father-in-law tried to hide some of the things that he had to go through until his nerves were almost gone. Don't be afraid to reach out to others for help! You will be in our prayers.

Lynn..I wrote you a letter..sent it..then came here and read this, went back and wrote you another one..clicked something accidently that said "do you want to save this" and clicked "no" NO idea what I was thinking but it's gone. Basically I just said I was concerned..
Everyone seems to understand your situation.
If you are considering "assisted living" for your might be a good idea..but a hard decision to make. NOT at all sure what I would do in your shoes..but I think Shelia (above)is right. If you need help..I hope you ask for it.

Lynne, I'm so sorry one day at a time my friend. My sister-in-law is going thru the same thing. It's time to put him in a nursing home. Prayer and hugs if you need to talk I'm here. Hugs Pat H

Pat Cantwell said...

My heart has had a stirring to visit you, dear friend for this entire last week.
Since, I gently silenced my original blog, I coundn't find your blog address.
Visiting Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life today, I came across your comment.
Call it Divine Intervention, dear friend!!!
My prayers are with you now and will continue in the days ahead
as you face difficult and uncertain times.
I have an attentive ear, huge (soft) shoulders and am a Prayer Warrior!!!
God bless you both as you move forward with decisions and new journeys!!!
P.S. My new blog On Crooked Creektt (Take Two)

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Pat, thanks so much for your visit and encouraging words, prayers to your s-in-law. fondly ~lynne~

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Lynne- I had this sudden feeling to look you up and check on you. I'm so sorry that this is happening to you. We nearly lost it all after the economy tanked on 2008-09. It's very unsettling. You feel you've done everything right and then the rug is pulled from underneath you. They say with every door that closes a new one opens. I hope you will find that open door that will take you to a place of comfort and security.
You are in my thoughts and racers, Liz

Rhonda said...

Lynne, I read your blog, not only to see your beautiful pictures, but to keep up with you and Mr. P. I'm sorry his illness is progressing and you can be assured you are in my prayers as you go through this very difficult time. Please know this is just life. It is not due to anything you have done or failed to do. The rain falls on the just and the unjust. Bad things do happen to good people. Even though this sounds trite, try to count your blessings when things look the darkest. You do have some wonderful things going on -- I know, because I've read your blog! :) Hugs to you!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Rhonda, thanks for your visit and kind words, trust me I so appreciate what I have and the beauty it gives us, challenges are just that challenges. fondly ~lynne~

Dolores said...

Oh Lynne,......... I hope you know how much I think of you and all that you're going through right now....I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and wishing we could sit on the porch and laugh and cry together.

Phyllis @Around the House said...

Lynn...I am so sorry you are dealing with this awful disease. My husband has ms and I know the toll being a caregiver can take on your life...watching as he gets weaker and's just not the way we had it planned, these years were supposed to be enjoying the fruits of our labor years...I just try my hardest to find the good and make the best of the blessings that we have...I know you know all of this...just know that I understand as does thousands and thousands of other people with burdens that seem never ending,,,I will say a big prayer for you to be strong and your husband to have more better and bettter days...Phyllis
