Quiet and Broken

Hello my friends. I know it has been kinda quiet on here lately. I hope to be getting back to posting more than just reviews in a few days. My brother’s care is consuming a bit of my time these days. Just as we were adjusting as a family to having him around our mother showed up…sick. Why she couldn’t wait until she felt better…not sure. She just had to see her son right now. The ironic thing is they haven’t said twenty words to each other since she got here on Monday and they haven’t seen each other in nearly four years. My family is so broken.

When my husband’s family gets together there is noise…lots of wonderful noise, talking, laughter and hugs. I love watching when they get together. I usually find a corner and sit back and watch them all enjoy each others company. There is so much beautiful life in the room when they are together…even when they grumble at each other. Sometimes I find it overwhelming…but comforting. I usually find a safe corner to watch from or hide behind my kids.

When my family gets together it is silent…silent like the grave.

  1. Wow. I never thought about us that way. Usually I am just offended that “the woman” are so loud, according to the men in our family, (who are just as loud). (ha) But you are right. We do love each other even when we are grumbling. And we do love you too. Because you know, we are now your family too.


  2. You are an amazing woman! You humble me with your patience and godly endurance. How much can you bear? God must love you very much to give you so much grace!! I always pray for specifics when submitting prayer for you and your family. I seem to be praying for ‘opportunities’ a lot. Stay strong! Blessings,
