Sad... but optimistic!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I have now suffered the 8th loss of someone close to me in 8 months.

However - she loved the LORD and was excited to meet him and be with her sister again! Little Ruthie just turned 87 in July and was a peach! She was a resident at the personal care home I work for part time.

I also found out my father-in-law is not doing well - Looking like a NY road trip tomorrow... I find it amazing that these things keep popping up on my days off...

Oh well - hitting gym HARD today

    I am so sorry to hear of all the loss of dear loved ones during the past 8 months. Praying for you and your family and the family of Little Ruthie during this time of loss. Praying also that God heals your father-in-law. emoticon

    I am sorry to hear about all the loss you have had in the past months. At least you know that Ruthie had her faith and you know where she is going. I had the same thing happen to me two weeks ago with my grandma. She passed away and I knew where she was going and that makes it a little easier. I will pray for you and your family for safe travels and for your father-in-law. God bless.

    Im sorry for your loss. Its very hard when one of your sweet ladies passes. I work in a long term care facility and I became very attached to many of my residents. Most of them all died within months of each other. I just had to remember that they had all lived long productive lives. Most of my ladies were anywhere from age 96 -100. But its still very sad when I go to work and there is someone else in their room.
    I will keep you in my prayers today. emoticon
