The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
i am here for you and understand your frustration and what you are feeling right now. i remember how it felt to be the primary caregiver and knowing that the person who gave you life, now counts on you for everything. but cindy, learn from me, please. you are just a daughter and a human being and can't fix anything, even though i know you want to. all you can do is love her well each day you have with her and make the best choices for her care that you can, and leave the results in God's care. i took on so much when dad died, that it almost destroyed me when he passed. i felt like i had failed him. my best advice is to treasure each day and love on your mom and make good choices and leave her future in God's loving hands. i am so sorry she is going through so much, and i know it is very hard to face, dear friend. i am so sorry. i will pray for you and your mom and wish you didn't have to face this, but hope that your family and friends will surround you with support and love. i am here and wish i lived closer and we could get together and i could be a more tangible means of support right now. krista tole me 11 1/2 years ago to just love my parents well because the time would come that i would be so grateful that i did do that and she was right. that is my best advice for you...just take it a day, an hour at a time and love her and know we all love and support you. my words are not coming out perfectly but know that i care and am here. and about the food, i am someone who understands the desire to run to the refrigerator when stressed but all i can say is it won't help. run to God, sweet friend. he can fill that hole in our soul and i am speaking to me as well as you. i love you, cindyh.
