  1. Wow. Your mom’s issues are so eerily similar to my aunt-in-law’s. I’ll be praying for your mom and everyone involved in her care and decision-making.

    Totally understand the exhaustion as I live it daily.

    Hugs and blessings to you, friend!

  2. Barbie, I can understand how you would be emotionally drained. I pray God will fill your cup with his love and peace and give you rest and refreshment.

    Blessings to you!

  3. Hi, Barbie! Hugs to you and a pat on the back to ease the tension. I’m sorry to hear about your mom falling and all the problems she’s having right now.
    I understand the dementia part; my mom has it also. It felt like such an unknown for quite some time. It’s not something that I had ever received training in. But over time the Lord has reminded me that He has this under control also. It’s not mine to control. One day He opened my eyes to see that Isaiah 46:4 is not just a promise for me someday; it is also a promise to my mom. That gave me comfort to know that He has borne her up all these years, and He is still the same and is still doing so.
    May the Lord lead you and your dad and siblings and the doctors and give you all wisdom and peace in Christ.

    • Thank you Ruth. My mom is not yet saved so she does not understand the love of God yet. I know He’s looking out for her even so. Blessings!

      • Yes, Barbie, He has watched out for her all these years and even now extends another opportunity for her to understand and believe His love for her revealed through the gospel message. I pray that she will do so.
        Love in Christ,

  4. I’m tired too, Barbie. After reading your post, I decided to listen to the song you posted and having a short quiet time even though I feel I don’t have time right now. Thanks!!

  5. I’m so sorry about your mom, Barbie! 🙁 It’s so difficult, not just physically but emotionally, when our parents transition to needing our help. Praying for your dad, your siblings, and you as you work out a schedule to help your mom. {Listening to this song as I type…beautiful!}

  6. Oh, sweet friend. Dealing with aging parents is a challenge and extremely stressful. May God hold you close and give you and your sister wisdom and discernment for what lies ahead. Praying that you get some rest for your mind and soul while the kids are away. Praying for healing for your mom. Blessings on your week, Barbie.

  7. Oh Barbie! I am sending a giant hug your way today. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I know all too well how stressful and emotionally exhausting it can be to watch our parents suffer with failing health. My heart and my prayers go out to you and your family as you all navigate this very hard season of life.
