Wife and Caregiver

How time flies? it is really a great transition for me to take care . Living and dealing this kinds of life is tough but I enjoy doing it. I asked God a real signs and truly he gave it. Then I must live what I promise to the Lord. To live and work in according to his will.

I am working as caregiver for almost one year and five months with my mother in law. Knowing how to define life as " the test of everything" but considering that I am married.Therefore, rest assured my husband's needs as well as my mother in law's needs. It feels good to love but can you imagine of just giving yourself in the name of LOVE? Yeah:) It is fulfilling but life in this world is not always bed of roses. Especially when you are dealing person uniqueness. Oh my goodness gracious! But to share what God's experience during his time is really a uplifting. He nailed his life on the cross to save us.

I realize to myself, what if I will be like her when I am getting older too? scary right! but I will be accepting the fact that dealing someone's uniqueness is really rewarding. Facing the reality is challenging !

Welcome Home Mama!

The doctor was talking to my husband about our mother's condition. They were preparing for the release her in the Hospital at Baylor Garland.I just took picture on the wall where their was name on it as well as the empty bed for her and the three picture down there!

We drove from our home to the Hospital to fetched her. I saw her smiling and she was ready to go. So we need to sign the papers and then go..... She loves to go home.. Its different when you felt the real home sweet home and feel the freshness of life. Yeah:) I felt everything, what she felt. I can tell her eyes and smile how really she want to go home very badly. I asked her many times if she wants to stay at nursing home. She keeps on telling me if she can still walk means that she can still stay at home. But If there will be a time that she can't do no more. So it is time to move on according to her. But as long as my husband and I are there for her we will be able to give our best shot as a caregiver for her. To give our love and tender loving care.

By taking care with our mother is really rewarding. I still believe in a miracle and graces will come between us. It is because God sees what is in our heart. To be able to give mom's satisfaction that matters most.
