These past couple of weeks have been rough. My daughter caught a cold and had a fever and then my husband got sick and now me. I still have so many ideas in my head and writing I want to do, but my body is protesting and my mind is just like “Please! Let me sleep! I beg of you.” But it is hard to keep a writer down. My current project is for the Voice 4 Society blog. I am working on an article about losing my mother at the age of seventeen. I didn’t just “lose” her, it didn’t happen that quick. She went in to the ER because she was getting sick and was running a fever. Come to find out my mother’s gall bladder was full of stones and she was beginning to turn yellow. She went in for immediate surgery, had her gall bladder removed and then….BAMB!!!! We were hit with the news! My mother also had cancer. For the next four months, day and night, I cared for my mother most of the time until I became so sleep deprived I could not hear her cries for help in the night and my own health was not that great. I am writing a story on this and how God helped me through each and every moment and how He is still helping me to this day with the memories and with daily life.
