BROKEN CHAIR – FALL TO THE FLOOR BROKEN TOE -CHAIR PLACED ON TOE
PAIN AND NO COMPLAINING
SOMETIMES I HEAR THE SADDEST COMMENTS – “I’m too old”, “I can’t do that”, “I wish”, on and on. Yet, I watch my mother at 85 – who traveled here to Kyrgyzstan from Arizona – to spend about four months in missions to work with youth and teach Life Skills. She has spend LONG days teaching sewing – and the patience that has gone forth is like that of JOB.
She is a model for many and for us for sure. She s generous, loving, patient and oh so talented in her ability to teach these little ones the art of sewing! Each child has made a pillow case for themselves – and next the girls will learn to make skirts for themselves.
Yet today – a broken chair gave way and she crashed to the floor. After getting home, I accidentally set a heavy chair onto her toe – likely breaking it. It is wrapped, she is Tylenoled and we sent her off to rest.
Tomorrow – she is ordered to stay home – rest and recover. Wonder how that will work?
MOM IS REALLY A TROUPER AND A MODEL FOR
LIVING AS A MISSIONARY IN YOUR SENIOR YEARS
WINTER IS HER BEST SEASON!
