Update on My Life This Week

Hi Friends,
I am pre-occupied this week. My father-in-law is on end-of-life care at the hospital right now. He is 97 years young and has lived his life to the fullest right up until this past October, when he had a bad fall. He lived in a nursing home near my family for a couple of months, providing so many opportunities for us to enjoy time together. He has read my blog from its inception and even linked to it from his own blog. His name is Dr. Robert H. Mounce, and he is primarily known as a New Testament scholar, although his career was expansive. My family has been blessed to know him and learn from his example.

I do have other things that I want to "talk" about with you all, but just don't have the time to type it all out right now. I'll be back very soon, though.
Take care,
Lili

Oh Lili, I'm so sorry for you, your husband and your family. It sounds like Dr. Mounce has had a long life that was well lived. What a gift to have had extended time with him. Hugs, prayers and peace to all.

It doesn't matter how long someone has lived or if there is time to say goodbye, it's always hard to lose them. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My thoughts and prayers, too, to you and your family. It is inspiring to hear of your father-in-law's courage and love to live a good life, as much as it hurts to hear when someone gives up. How one person lives affects the rest of us.
