The cover of my devotional "Journey to Sunset" is a reproduction of an oil painting I had done of my parents from a photo I had taken at Oceanside Beach. Early this morning (3:00 a.m.) I sat in my living room thinking how blessed I am to still have them, my mom is 86 and my dad 85. They moved in with us almost two years ago due to their advancing age and thank God they did. I decided to retire so I could stay home with them, but deep down in my heart I was worried I might be taking too much on ... but reflecting on the past five months, I realize how fortunate I am to be able to be with them full-time, through good days and bad. Knowing they have entrusted their care to me and wanting me to walk with them on their journey to sunset warms my heart. What a wonderful opportunity to return the love and care they gave me as a child ~ life has come full circle.
Have a Blessed Day!
