I feel the same as any other good Mom. I want to find a way to have more "Quality Time" with my boys.
Instead of having to use all those Precious Moments doing dishes, doing laundry, cleaning, making beds, changing sheet, preparing meals, shopping for groceries, picking -up, putting-up, and doing the MOUNTAINS of Paperwork it takes to try and get help for our family (for David) (nursing care, diapers, gloves, anything from our government) with no luck. Not to mention ALL THE DIAPERS I change day and night.
IF only I could spend that time hanging out with Trammell (He and I only have THREE HOURS A WEEK we can leave the house together. Right now we have a voucher from an organization called Senior Solutions here in Anderson who is paying 11.00 of the 16.50 per hour it cost to have a nurse come in to care for David. They allow us 3 hours per week. We can then leave the condo for doctor's appt. or to find something VERY Inexpensive to do. (We have discovered recently how much we enjoy playing pool in the Billiard Room at the club house here at Overlook Condos. The clubhouse is really nice, quiet and it's FREE!!!)
I wish I could spend more time with David. Reading to him, drawing and coloring with him, helping him put puzzles together (He needs help even putting together preschool puzzles),
taking him outside for walks or just watching one of his cartoon movies with him.
ALL day and All night I RUN. My days are a blur and my nights seem endless.
I dream of nights that I can lay my head down and know I can sleep ALL NIGHT without having to jump up every 2 to 3 hours to check on David, change his diaper or worse.
I PLACE IT ALL IN THE HANDS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. HE KNOWS OUR
HEARTS AND HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT'S BEST FOR US.
ABOVE ALL - I KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT - GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL OF THIS.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Always be joyful. Never stop Praying. Be Thankful in ALL circumstances, for this is GOD'S
will for you who belong to Christ Jesus
