Please pray for my Mom, Bernice, who is 87 years old and suffering from cancer that has metastasized to the bone from breast cancer she never knew she had. Mom has a lot of pain, as well as digestive issues (nausea, acid reflux, gas), dizziness, and bladder issues. Please pray for me. I am an only child & happily single, so I'm responsible for her care--thank the LORD I have the assistance of two wonderful aides named Mary & Bernadette--so please pray for them & their family (Mary is the Mom & Bernadette is the daughter & a single mom of two children.). Our aides have a well deserved day off to spend with their family, and caregiving alone is a lonely & sometimes challenging task since Mom has a lot of pain & discomfort & either needs my help or needs to sleep to escape & rest. Mom is still a wonderful person, appreciative, holy, intelligent & in her right mind, thank the LORD, but she is suffering a lot. I juggle caring for Mom with my itinerant speech therapy work with a caseload of preschool children & my Church ministry activities, which are my LIFEBLOOD. Someday I hope to organize Pro-Life Ministry Fairs so that people will be better informed about all the resources available for women in crisis pregnancies in order to make referrals & contributions, but now my #1 pro-life activity is caring for and cherishing my Mom--if I fail at that, none of my pro-life activity would have credibility. I would someday also like to accomplish more with writing & music.
Please pray for my cousin Patti & her family--she has various health issues and my goddaughter Alicia and her family--she is still young but has various health issues.
Please pray for my cousin Katie, her estranged husband Nick, and their two precious little girls. After the birth of their second child Nick became depressed & separated himself from his young family. Thank the LORD Katie has a good job, good parents & siblings & good friends, but it would be wonderful if their little nuclear family could be restored.
