Today my prayer is for all people who are in assisted living or nursing home situations.. .
That they might find grace to accept the involuntary changes occuring in their minds and bodies. . .
Each day we all awaken to something physical that has begun its process of diminishment. . .
Each day we can each choose to honor that which we still can do . . .
Each day we face the new reality of our mortality. . .
Mother was sick this morning.
She has recovered.
We both hold those tenuous moments clearly in our hearts.
May we each be blessed with grace and Spirit to live with these truths with dignity and assurance and peace.
