Time To Say Goodbye Gets Closer

I have been with my mom a few days and my brother who live in the south came up to see her as well.  She mad it to see her 81st birthday yesterday surround by her family.

Try as she might the cancer has grown to such a size she can not swallow and keep it down.  How long can someone live this way?  I hope she speaks to hospice if not for herself but for those of us who feel so helpless.

This is so hard to watch and I know so many of you have been through this as well and bless you if tried with all your might to make your loved one comfortable.  I will be with her God willing next weekend and then the following one she will watch her granddaughter wed.  It is what has been keeping her going.

This will be moms last year so seeing summer end it will have at least left us with beautiful colors.Take care everyone.

The season will end soon enough for these beauties as the drought has been rough on the land and my well.

Mom started Chemo yesterday so far so good but I am just trying to keep the faith.

I was invited to show my Watercolors last Wednesday in Dover NH and will again this Wednesday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. Myrtle Street Gallery on the sidewalk outside of the Chop House come by if you are in the area.  Mine is a starving artist sale very inexpensive art so I can continue to paint.

My town celebrated it’s 275th Birthday with a day long celebration so much fun after working on committee for almost 2 years.

Daily Prompt: Far from Home

Arizona
Arizona

Arizona is far from home for us.  We live in the Northeast and this is the Southwest.

For me,  a Trucker I always traveled far from home but for the most part I traveled within the United States with a dash into Canada now and then.

This trip was special as the man  I loved was not given much hope of a long life so we packed up the old Chevy van with camping  supplies and Gold Prospecting equipment we already had and the pup of course and headed west.  He had never been past the military base in Texas and that was so long ago for boot camp.  He flew in and out of there.  So this would be a journey for him but for me it would be like old times, well without the shifting.

We stayed out on BLM  land for 6 or 7 weeks till we had to come back for another visit with his doctor.  He did not want to go back home least of all for more tests.  I missed home and my kitty too much to hide my head in the sand of the desert.  We loaded up the old van and said our goodbyes to all we had met and I snapped a few more photos.

We came home to good news much to their amazement.  We could once again take out the map from my old trucking days and plan a trip far from home.
