16th April

A very quiet day, no visitors and only a couple of phone calls; an opportunity to rest. And we have. Unfortunately without the distraction of visitors there’s a little too much time to think and then the tears start. So let’s keep busy? Or even nod off for a while as Jane regularly does… she’s still very tired and weak. Anyway after multiple crosswords we took the afternoon air with a happy hour in the garden… coffee/tea and cream cake made for a perfect moment together! This did Jane a power of good, so much so that when she came inside again she decided to take notice of the cleaning deficiencies of the household men. She never said a word… but I found her in the kitchen trailing oxygen tubing and sprinkling surface wipes here there and everywhere and suddenly life feels very normal again. And very clean. But I’m learning.

Oh Lord please help me to look after Jane and make this season of our lives special. Father let each day be valued and may we know and fulfil your will in all that we do. And if it be your pleasure Oh God will you release your healing into Jane’s broken body?

Psalm 40 ‘I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.’
