My workout friend Jan happens to be our son's mother-in-law and our daughter-in-law's mother. Jan brings Les and I lattes every Tuesday morning. She is so sweet and giving.
I do bookkeeping work for Joey. Joey, Jeff and Joe built our wheelchair ramp in the garage. Joey and Jeff also put in a wider door to our bathroom so the wheelchair gets in easier. Joey is a great boss and a great friend. My other construction friends helped refinish the new door, and our church friend Dan (who owns the door store) donated the door. This is all so great!
The reverend in romeo's has made some random visits. He recently cleaned out our flower beds and brought away all our cardboard. I need to catch him by camera one of these visits!!
My friends Pam and Doris have set up a schedule for meals to be brought in. This has been very helpful since we were receiving so many meals! We are truly blessed by all the great cooks we know.
The cleaning fairies have been showing up every few weeks. It seems like such an easy thing to just quick vacuum or dust...........but that's always at the end of my list so never gets done. It's such a relief knowing that our house is staying clean. Well......... except for the other day when Kris was transferring his Dad and knocked over his FULL vanilla latte on the carpet........... Oh well. It's only carpet. Thankfully Melinda next door has a Spot Bot.
Recently our church handed out a piece of paper that was blank except for "Dear Les"....... The other day Pastor Clay stopped by with all of these notes from our church family. We can only read a few at a time because I start crying and can't read, and Les starts crying and can't breath...... We are so grateful for our church family. (Truly, how does anyone go through a journey like this without the support of a church family?????) It is a silver lining to being diagnosed with a terminal illness: Les is being blessed even as he knows his life here on earth is short. In all truthfulness, we should always be this caring and supportive of each other! We are all going to die some day - Les is not the only one that will leave this world!
We had a great Mother's Day. We are blessed to have my mom here with us, and our two girls. Baby bump is growing!!!
