Hi Denise, awesome. Funny how this works and I enjoy your website. Your family sounds like mine! I recently graduated
and applied for grad school. This was a surprise to me which just happen. At that time, my parents (which I prayed about) moved back to the bay area, mom recently
diagnosed with breast cancer-stage #2. Out of the siblings, I’m her closest and the oldest, single parent juggling with
plenty of resources and thrive in gerontology which is my major. I also have experience as a recreational therapist student
intern…Now its my mom. So, recently she stayed with me 10 days, OMG, she was a kick. We had to establish boundaries, and things because don’t you know I have a 15 going on 40, right? And mom has some behavioral problems, I mean by the
time she went home, my dad said, this is you. I looked at him, I said stay with me for 10 days, you can come back that way too. He laughed. Stayed over there 4 days, and made trips back n-forth to check on my teen. Wow god is good. Take care of myself, made calls, and quite time was all important. I spoke to a close relative in confidence and she is
very proud of me, and you know what me too! I had know idea I can manage. After I read, juggled, went to my support, talked with god, tried to speak to my sisters-no support, I got the answer I needed, it was, write you and say for the first
time I know “I was touched by an Angel” and it was my mom.” No matter what illness she has she gave me a gift and it
was love she taught me to see that through the eyes of others. I felt her needing someone emotionally because of the
cancer/chemmo which she needed. Keep in touch. I’m interested in how you got a publisher for your books.
