Don't you wish there were flowers in your gardens? Oh I sure do.
Yesterday, I went to the Methodist Hospital in Indy. That's where my brother Mark is. It was shocking, all the tubes and screens. He is no better and I did not get any more news of his condition...being it was Sunday. One nurse said his general health was against his condition as much as anything else. He has not taken care of his health. Makes me so sad for him and his sons. His sons are in their twenties, not babies....but not so grown.
Thank you to all my blog friends and family. I appreciate all of you more than you will ever know. Your kind words and prayers have touched my heart. I have passed them on to my family members too. Bless all of you. XO
I am so sorry your brother isn't any better,Susie.Praying he will soon be improving!ReplyDelete
Yes, I am waiting to see the first flower to come up in my beds.
Have a Blessed Day!
Thank Sylvia, Today I heard he is resting...but nothing really new. I am so ready to plant my containers on the porch..well I would love to...I do not want to get to eager. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
oh it is so sad, maybe he will rally round yet, there is always hope,ReplyDelete
your flower photos are lovely,
Thank you Laurie. I pray for my brother, there's is nothing any of us can do. I love my lilies, hope they are plentiful this summer. xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, I am so sorry and sad to read this news. My very dear friend just recently experienced what you are going through with her brother, whose life choices brought him to a very sad end. I am hopeful for your brother though to improve and for God's will for him and that your brother and you will be at peace.ReplyDelete
Your flower pics are beautiful.
Nonnie, We all know we do not love to love a person crazy life style to love that person. Family makes it even harder to see them neglect themselves. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Hello, I just found you from visiting another blog. So very sorry for your brother and his illness. Just know prayers and hugs are being sent your way.ReplyDelete
Hello, Thank you for the prayers and hugs. I truly appreciate them. I wish there was more I could do for my brother...but what better thing than prayer. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Sending prayers for your brother, I am glad you got to see him. Maybe by the time the flowers start to bloom he will be recoveringReplyDelete
Hi Ann, Thank you for the prayers. I would love to do more or know more...but it's in God's hands. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
OH- I am so sorry, Susie. I know what it is like to lose a brother. My brother slipped into a coma the last day or so of his life and I know that he would not have wanted to live like that for long. It is sad to see them hooked up to all that stuff and sadder yet to see them in that condition.ReplyDelete
My brother was in perfect health- ate right- exercised-didn't smoke-perfect weight---and in the end he died in less than a week after getting sick. We just never know what the greater plan is for us.
God bless you and your family as you walk this path....xo Diana
Diana, when I saw the picture of Charlie, I just wanted to cry..I know you are still missing him so badly. It sounds like your brother took care of himself....my brother didn't, even after being warned. I hope they can tell us something this week. Thank you so much for your prayers. xoxo,SusieDelete
I too have watched a person I know well, who really never took care of himself struggling to hang in there. He's not quite in your brother situation but he is really just a shadow of his former self.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy, it is sad when we love and care for others, possibly more than they care for themselves. My brother's had many warning to change his bad habits...but he just keep at it...now this..it's heartbreaking. Bless you, take care of yourself dear friend. xoxo,SusieDelete
I think that Diana said it perfectly, Susie. We don't know. But we can pray - for your brother, for his sons, and for you, friend.ReplyDelete
Judy, thank you for the prayers...it means something to all of my family...we all need prayer. Right now that is all we can do for my brother. xoxo,SusieDelete
I too feel so sad that your brother is not doing better. It's so hard for all the family. And having children 20...that is still too young to leave behind. More prayers dear. Sending love and hugs to you too.ReplyDelete
Wanda, My heart hurts for my nephews. They have not had the best life . My mother sure tried her best with them. My brother's out come is our Lord's hands...so we pray. Thank you for your prayers. xoxo,SusieDelete
I'm playing catch up again on blogs. I am so sorry to hear about your brother. I understand not liking their way of life, but loving them. Believe it or not, I have some family members that I'm like that with too! I have learned not to criticize them though and just keep on showing them that I do love them. Keep the faith that your brother will recover. Please keep us posted.
I want that pink pitcher at Hortons. I might have to go get it! Do you remember what it costs? I haven't been there in awhile and I won't be won't be able to go to their spring open house. It's on the first day of spring break for my cousin and we are going to FLorida again.
Cindy, I do not know the price of that pitcher. I will try to see if I can go again . Yes, we love our families even when they go astray , cause truly that's when they need to know we love them. You take care of break, I know you had a crazy time last year. xoxo,SusieDelete

Thank you Japolina. This is a tough time for my whole family, especially my nephews. We have not been given any new information about my brother's chances. But I pray. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I was just thinking the same thing this morning, Susie, that I wish there were flowers in my back yard. It looks so bare, and I can't wait to plant some flowers this spring.ReplyDelete
