prayers for my MIL (94 & in surgery)
I feel kind of funny posting this. But I have seen & felt so many good vibes here that I thought I would just do it. My mother in law Helen in Ft. Lauderdale fell down yesterday morning & broke her femur bone. It's the third breakage. She'll be 95 in August if she makes this surgery. (Which they did this afternoon.) They didn't know if they should operate but decided to go ahead.

The thing that's so just horrible is me. I refused to go visit at Christmas coz I hate Ft. Lauderdale. I really can't believe how selfish I was. She just begged us a lot to come, and I love Christmas in the cold with my tree and JUNK. Well not junk, I've just felt all day how selfish I was. God. She's been more than generous over the years. I hope so much she makes it and I can make it up to her I think right now that the worse thing in life is to be selfish and I committed that sin. That's all.

Thank you for listening. wow

Awww...I'll be praying.

Do not drive yourself crazy with guilt. You didn't mean anything by staying home at Christmas, and you certainly didn't have a crystal ball. You had no way of knowing...

Be there for her, if you can, right now. This is when she needs you the most.

Please, don't be so hard on yourself. I am not as old as your MIL but I do believe I would understand about Christmas and the fact you too have a life. Be there for her when she is better and have Christmas in April, May, June or July. It is a date, it is what you feel that matters. My prayers and thoughts to the family.

You are all so great to take the time... THANKS so much!!!


We got a phone call this morning that she made it through the surgery (6 hours of it!) She thought she wouldn't. Thank God. I said a lot of prayers yesterday. I'm looking at shawls to knit right now, a quick one! thanks again, I appreciate and feel better.
