The Ever Rushing Stream

The River of Time

It has been some while and I know some of you may be wondering what happened to me. Where have I been? What is going on? Never fear, I am still here. Life threw me a vicious curve and knocked me off my feet, but I’m in the process of brushing myself off and getting back up. Your notes of concern and friendship, your prayers and hugs and the positive energy streaming in my direction have been and continue to be a great Comfort and beacon of Hope.

THANK YOU EVER SO~

Not to go into too great detail, but so you are more aware, should you care to be, the sad news I (we- as in, my family) received last week is that my mother has advanced Leukemia. Time is precious (more so than usual) and friends and family have been stopping by. So, I have been dealing with this new reality and struggling to put my Faith forward, in spite of it all, Trusting.

Life moves on, like the ever rushing stream (as my poem this morning expresses). I find my thoughts twisting from shadows to bright ribbons of light, and I have been contemplating many things we all rather not consider. So my poetry/posts may be few and far between, my comments lacking, my responses delayed….I am sorry. This too shall pass and the Blessing of prolific words shall return. Until then, be patient with me, Sweet Friends; I shall make every effort to continue onward.

~Morgan~

  7. My thoughts and prayers are with you. My dad died of leukemia 27 years ago. He was a printer and for years (before they knew better) had cleaned the presses bare-handed with chemicals that they now know are carcinogens. We were fortunate in a way that he did not suffer long. His death was unexpected, and he was only 68. I will keep praying for you and your Mom.
