I called the ambulance for her and off she went. I made Dad stay home because he couldn't walk around the hospital and I went with her. It was late when I got home and this morning I awoke thinking gee I can't go to the Basilica with my friend today and I have to miss my regular time of Mass this morning because I have to go get Mom's meds. I'm thinking...I just don't have life anymore...........ok now you are caught up.
So I'm whinning to God, "Gee God, I'm not sure how much of this I can take. Please give me your Grace to get through this. This is so difficult." And I'm also asking Him basically to take away my cross. AND THEN CNN REPORTER is talking about Haiti and he's saying it's remarkable because everywhere in all this tragedity people are just spontaneously thanking God. Praising God JOYOUSLY...he said it's amazing.
And I think to myself, you have NO cross compared to the people in Haiti and they can stop and praise God in the midst of their horror..............TODAY. I'm just going to look in my parents eyes and see the eyes of Jesus & thank God that I have 2 parents and that I can spend time with them even if it's to spend it in hospitals or in service to them.
