time out

Time-out for me.  I am taking a little time out to fly down to Kentucky and see my Mom who is not well.  In the midst of providing comfort as well as comic relief, I am taking a blogging break to focus on my Mom and some work that is piling up too.  I just love this photo of Lucy, now that's what I call, "Grace under Pressure."

Hope this time-out will be just the thing to cure my Mom and get my act in line too.  Back in a week!

Sending you best wishes from this side of the pond. I hope your mother is OK and that you carve out what sounds like much needed family, self and work time. Also, I only just read an old comment you posted for me with suggestions for my elevator... I hadn't ever seen it... you had the BEST idea with photos under glass... I think that's what I'm going to try & do... thank you!

halcyon said...

Patricia,
My best wishes go with you. It's a hard time for adult children to go through this, when parents are ill, but it's an opportunity to return the many years of sacrifice on their parts when they cared for us. Praying for your Mom's health and comfort, and your peace of mind.

eeeyowee !!!

...I feel just like Lucy in that picture when ever I am on the receiving end of one of my mother's little talks. Zingo !!!!
AND...I am entirely too old for those talks anyway.

But...my mom is sick as well.
I hope your mom is better soon.
