Be kind to one another...
Late Saturday morning. Little Miss S is napping upstairs while her parents take the day to celebrate their anniversary. The house is quiet, with Casey's parents (his father arrived yesterday) and his wife at the hospital. Tim is outside, doing some yard work, so I thought I'd take a few minutes to give you an update.
First of all, thank you so much for your well wishes and your prayers. Casey is improving, but his full recovery is going to be a long and arduous process. No one is saying much about when he will be released from hospital. In the meantime, we are just trying to be encouraging and supportive. I've been taking some meals up to the hospital for the family, and generally keeping the home front going. Our local friends have offered so much help - someone is bringing fresh home baking over later this afternoon. Strangers have offered help. Truly, most people are kind.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I'm privileged to have a wonderful mother and a wonderful mother-in-law who are both examples to me on how to show kindness to others. I love them so much.
Be kind to someone today. You may never know what it may mean to them.
Lorrie, I am catching up with blogs, having been away, and am so sorry to hear of the accident. Thank God it wasn't worse.ReplyDelete
I will keep you all in prayer.
I know all about the badly broken wrist and the shock from that alone - I'm feeling Casey's pain. Goodness me a fractured hip too, I'm hoping he is normally a fit and healthy young man and will recover quickly.ReplyDelete
Sending prayers from across the seas to all involved.
Je viens de lire les nouvelles, je prierai pour Casey bien sûr. Ce doit être très éprouvant émotionnellement, surtout prenez tous bien soin de vous. Je reviendrai aux nouvelles la semaine prochaine.ReplyDelete
Continued blessings on you and may God's servants continue in being kind one to another...ReplyDelete
Thank God for the kindness of friends and neighbours as you support your nephew and his family. I hope you have a pleasant Mother's Day? Though I would imagine that your family expresses love and appreciation every day.ReplyDelete
I was sorry to hear about this. I am just catching up on reading blogs after being poorly. I do hope that Casey recovers quickly. Take care and I hope you manage to have a good Mother's Day. Take care. Chel xReplyDelete
Very wise words. My thoughts and prayers are with Casey, you, and the the rest of the family.ReplyDelete
We're trying to be supportive of a dear neighbor friend and his wife right now. He is dying of prostate cancer and doesn't have much more time left on this earth. She has already asked if we will be friends with her after he passes. It about broke my heart. We both reassured her. Life is precious, and kindness can go a long way to comfort people.
Isn't that the truth? It's amazing how people will come around you in a time of need. Glad you are experiencing that. Happy Mother's day to you too.ReplyDelete
It's good to know that people are helping you all out at this time. I hope your Mother's Day is special and I'm sure you are all so thankful the Casey is going to be alright. Blessings to you. PamReplyDelete
It is the small acts of kindness that mean so much when a family is in distress. Although the process will be slow, I am glad that your nephew will be getting better.ReplyDelete
Oh I'm so glad that you and Tim are available at this time to offer a port in a storm. Such things are very precious. Praying for you all...for calm and peace and good healing to be going on. Casey is obviously a strong young man from good stock. And prayer definitely changes things.ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day, Lorrie!ReplyDelete
Thinking of you and your family and sending prayers.
I'm behind in my blog reading......... praying for Casey. Sounds like he has a long road ahead of him....... but sounds like he will do well. People are generally good!!!ReplyDelete
I am sorry to hear about your nephew. Best wishes to him.ReplyDelete
I cannot ever see you as anything else but kind.ReplyDelete
Best wishes to you and the family.
It's lovely knowing so many are willing to help out - hopefully Casey's hospital stay will not be too long and his recuperation fast.ReplyDelete
Most people are kind, and it's a better world for that.ReplyDelete
Hope his recovery continues smoothly.
I just read about Casey and thankful with you that he is recovering. I'm sure you help is much appreciated at this time.ReplyDelete
Our son-in-law has done a lot of hang gliding and paragliding and decided last year to sell his equipment. There were a number of accidents here last summer, and although he is not afraid, he decided that it was taking away too much time from his family. This is a hard decision to come to for someone who loves to fly.
Wishing all the best to this young family.
