OOTD – Black and White Monday

Hello friends and Happy Monday…Tuesday sorry – yesterday’s post was dedicated to my mother-in-law so I didn’t feature an outfit of the day.  Before I begin I want to thank everyone for their comments as well as prayers because I do believe in the power of it!  Yesterday she had a good day and although her body is weak and frail her mind is sharp and active – so keep on praying.

Monday’s outfit was a combo of black and white but I need to use splashes of color, I’ll be looking for some colorful scarves at Goodwill or maybe Plato’s Closet .  I have never gone to a Plato’s Closet although there is one in Exton just a few miles from my job, and there is also one about a mile from The Hospice on Limestone Road, I’ll check one of them.

I wore a bunch of silver bangles, a pair of silver earrings and silver ring with a red stone, the only splash of color – lol

 

Again,  thank you so much for praying – have a wonderful evening – Smooches!

Grandma’s Hands

Hello friends and Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and today proves to be stress free and productive.

Friday night and Sunday afternoon, my sons and I went to Heartland Hospice to visit my mother-in-law, their only living grandparent. It brought back so many memories, ones of my own grandmother who was cared for by nurses from Heartland. However, in her case she was able to be home with us in her own bed when she transitioned. The thought process and physical condition of my mother-in-law is identical to that of my grandmother’s, now knowing it’s only a matter of time. She is heavily medicated as to not be in much pain, in and out of consciousnesses often times becoming lucid which is heart breaking. She spoke of leaving soon to go home and make chili, naming all the ingredients she needed and then the next minute looked up at me to compliment my scarf and nail polish – tears!

My sons are once again losing a family elder and they held her hands just as they did with my grandmother their great-grandmother in 2009. The song Grandma’s Hands by Bill Withers was the song that accompanied a montage at my grandmother’s funeral and it’s appropriate for this post.

If you have your grandparents in your life please celebrate them especially during this joyous season as they are truly a treasure to be honored and cherished.

I also ask for prayers for my husband and his mother during this time.
