This has been a challenging but rewarding time. My mom has been hospitalized and is in rehab, about to be released to home. For me, this has been a time for all of us to lavish her with much deserved attention and care. It probably won't turn out just as we-who-like-to-control would like, but it is all in God's hands. I'm convinced of that.
My mom has some mental health challenges that probably won't go away any time soon. But I think she knows now that she is loved.
