Dearest Michele ~ My thoughts and prayers are with you as we travel a similar path in our lives. My husband passed away seven years ago after a 10+ year medical struggle when he survived an accident with a TBI. My parents were my rock to get through this, despite Dad's poor health, and Mom's heavy plate at the time. This summer on Father's Day, my Dad gently passed on after a lengthy and difficult slow-down over the years. It is different being a daughter and yet being the helper to your Mom as she travels the new path as a widow. Be strong together, rely on your faith as you help each other, and keep God in your life. Some days might not be as bright as others...that truly is OK! Sometimes additional days of being quiet are going to be necessary after busy days. Be easy on yourselves and each other, and make the best of every day. I am happy to visit with your more, one-on-one or via this chat, if you wish. With abundant blessings, Christine

"CatholicMatch can help you find your soul mate and maybe even yourself! Unlock the secret to your personality by understanding your temperament and that of your friends and even potential spouse! Take the temperament test on CatholicMatch, and find out whether you are choleric, sanguine, melancholic, or phlegmatic! You will get to know yourself (and your loved ones) a little better."
