March Madness Challenge ~ Day 22

Day 22 (V) ~ Vigour

P1050770

Vigour ~ effort ~ energy ~ positivity

My Mum still shows vigour in many ways, to talk to us and to show what strength she has while the infections attack her body, her mind is still strong.

Desperate ramblings because I'm desperate to learn how to do all this blog stuff and ramblings cos due to ill health I tend to ramble on even more than usual!

    Thanks for reusing the image – it is priceless! Sad to learn about Mum’s condition though, but what’s heartening is that her mind is still strong. We have to draw consolation from the stoic thought that all our days are numbered and when it is time to bid adieu it just happens as planned by Him. Let us treasure the available time of our loved ones still around us, and give joy and comfort adding to the stock of golden memories. May God’s mercy be on the needy and suffering souls – Amen!

    • Thank you mike7sedona. I believe I have told you that I am not a follower of religion in any way which is my choice which I am sure you will accept and I am glad it does not affect our ability to follow discussion/comments with each other.
      The image fills me with awe (through my deeper feelings) every time I look at it. Thank you also for your signing off note as regardless of my personal opinions I am glad to receive any blessings you or any other puts forward. I do have some good news also!

        It’s just perfectly alright to feel the way you do about religion and that should never come in the way of mature adults dealing with each other in the day to day life. Looking forward to the good news!:)

      • Thank you mike7sedona. Got Mum home and with family and nurses trying to make her as comfortable as possible as she gently passes away. Not posted as been completely busy with Mum. Such a sad time šŸ˜¦ Be back when I can šŸ™‚

        That explains the silence – at least Mum’s home at last, and rest ought to be as predestined; hope she spends her time in a homely atmosphere full of love and comfort! šŸ™‚

      • Hey mike7sedona. Mum is deteriorating so fast now as expected. We are caring for her 24hrs and for her sake hoping her reunion with my lovely Dad will be soon to save her suffering. So hard šŸ˜¦

        Well, looks like it’s time for the lovely reunion and so be it, as under such circumstances an early demise is better than all that painful suffering – so hard indeed! Be brave and do what’s best as a loving and dutiful daughter – take care!

      • Yes mike7sedona, anything is better than the increasing suffering which is requiring more and more medication. Without thought of course I, my brother and sister in law are here for her giving 24hr care ourselves rather than getting unknown carers in. We may accept the offer of a Marie Curie nurse at some point but will see how we go day by day but we are managing fine right now. In the nicest way we and my Mum hope her passing is sooner rather than later so the reunion she has yearned for for almost 5 years now can occur. She has no quality of life now and is upset at the loss of her dignity. So very hard but I know our Dad would be so very proud of us which means lots. Bye for now and you make sure you take care as you go along too.

        Please don’t overstrain yourselves and fall sick, and if necessary, do make use of the services of the available Marie Curie nurse.

        I can understand Mum being upset at the loss of her dignity which is quite uneasy and unpleasant for any soul especially under the prevailing circumstances, and all the more reason for an early demise.

        Yes, Dad would certainly be so very proud of y’all and also for helping Mum on her way towards the much-awaited the reunion! Bye until we meet next!

      • Indeed! So pleased to have your comments thanks. Yes I am now on a very good road and am making the most of every day as much as I can. I am now full of positivity (the ‘darkness’ remains, as it never really disappears but I overcome it better most days!). Really excited to be near to seeing what my ‘new reality’ is to be šŸ™‚

        It is said that the Path of Enlightenment is about Awakening the part of the Universe that exists within you. You are aware of the duality of existence and that knowledge will only give you a better and wholesome ‘reality’ of the true purpose of life, but one day at a time, helping you believe in what you could be, all that you are and you will be as time unfolds!
