"Being his real brother I could feel I live in his shadows, but I never have and I do not now. I live in his glow.” ― Michael Morpurgo, Private Peaceful
My brother is visiting from Wyoming today and for the next couple of weeks. I need your prayers and good vibes that he spends time with Mom this visit, more time then he usually does on these visits. The time to spend time with Mom is now not when she is on her death bed like he did with my dad. I wish that as much for him as I do for Mom. I hate to see Mom's hurt when he doesn't spend much time with her. But I watched his hurt and guilt feelings when dad left this world and I don't want to see those again. I know he is in a difficult situation because the people that control his life seem to plan every moment for him and those moments don't include time with Mom. I do hope if I was married that I had enough backbone to stand up to my wife and just tell her, you do what you want, I need to go see Mom. So send me prayers and good thoughts that bro steps up to the plate and makes mom happy this visit.
On the agenda today is lunch with Mom and then making a casserole for dinner for her and the caregiver. I did so well with Mary's recipe that I am going to try one on my own. I am hoping for the same result, it with either kill them or thrill them. I am hoping it thrill's them.
