In one of my flower posts I mentioned how we touch people with our lives, sometimes without even realizing it. There are some people who come into our lives, and they have such a profound effect on us that we are changed from that moment forward for the better. We never look at life the same way again, their mark upon us is permanent, and we realize that the only explanation is that God orchestrated it to be just so.
I recently started following terry1954 who is the sole caregiver for a brother with mental challenges as well as Advanced Parkinson’s Disease. In her posts, she chronicles her days as care giver and her struggles to find meaning in her life and her brother’s.
It struck a chord with me how much faith she has in God, even though her struggles are many as she watches her brother die by inches every day. In a situation where many would lose their faith, hers is strengthened.
The result of sharing this with the blogosphere is passing on the faith to others. It also sets an example of strength in the face of adversity, and in my case, humbles me with regards to my own struggles in life and how I view them.
I would like to ask my readers for two things. The first is, to visit terry’s sight. I am certain that in her pages you will find strength where you did not know it existed. The second is to link to the Facebook page she has set up for her brother to wish him a happy birthday. It doesn’t matter that you don’t know him. They both need the kindness that humanity has the ability to bring to them.
Thank you for reading.
