~~Haiku My Heart~~

Posted by Picasa

a son's devotion to his mother
is one of God's real treasures
more precious than gold

Dedicated to my brother who watches over and attends to the needs of my mother.  This last week she had to be hospitalized for an S2 fracture in her back.  He communicated everything to us and kept us all apprised of her condition.   He worked with the hospital staff and the staff at St. John's to get her settled when she was discharged.  This has truly reduced Mother's anxiety and she can make decisions without too much stress.  Well done, Phil!

Thanks be to God!
