Dad said something to Mom recently (I think it was day before yesterday) that I forgot to share. It says volumes about the kind of wife that Mom has been and continues to be to him.
As she was sitting beside him holding his hand, Dad told her that he didn't think he would have many more days with her. She told him that although that would be hard, it would be ok. Then he said--this is the great part--"I guess it won't be much of a life for you, without Grampie Ames around."
I think this is wonderful, because it shows how Mom has made Dad feel loved and appreciated, even in his incapacitated state. They are so precious, and I pray for God's love, peace and comfort to surround them unceasingly in the valley of the shadow.
