I received a call last night around 9:30 that one of my parishioner's mother was dying at the hospice (which is one hour drive). I got home after 1 a.m. She is still holding on. This family is one of the reasons that I am participating in the Alzheimer's Walk on Thursday. It has been very hard on the family to watch the mother forget them, forget herself, forget everything.
Needless, to say I was not very chipper this morning at 6:45 when I drove Ryss to cross country. But I submitted one of the post-seminar requirements for my D.Min. today, so I have accomplished something but not much. I just can't get over being tired. I even begged off of a District Finance Meeting. I just couldn't face the drive today. Living so far out just adds an extra dimension of difficulty to everything. I'm whining, sorry.
I encourage all of you to check out www.alzalliance.org I don't know if there are organizations and walks everywhere this Thursday but it is a nice way to spend a couple of hours.
