About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Prayers please....

I am hoping that you all will be kind enough to send prayers and good wishes across the miles/kilometres to my Mum.  As you may remember from an earlier post, she is 91 and was diagnosed with Chronic Heart Failure earlier this year.  She and my DDad (93) seem to be having trouble managing the condition successfully (they still live in their own home and refuse to have extra nursing help).

Well, she is having a really bad week this week and is not well at all.  I fear that she will not be with us for much longer.  I know that she is 91 and has had a long life (in fact she and Dad both feel that they have been blessed with a much longer life than they ever could have imagined) but it is still hard for us all to see her feeling so unwell and so low.  My poor Dad is getting very weary and I know that he fears a life without her - they have been married 67 years and I think that their strong marriage is what allowed him to recover from the horrors of being a POW in Changi during WWII).

So, please spare a thought and a prayer for her as you go about your day today,

Many thanks.....

Kaye - my heart goes out to you. I know what you are going through. My mother - my WONDERFUL mother - my Energizer Bunny - had a massive stroke about a month ago. It has been heart wrenching to see her work through her issues. My dear step father has had a reoccurrence of colon cancer and goes in for more surgery next week. Prayers to you all - Love and warm wishes -

How wonderful Kaye that you've had them for so long. Its never long enough, though! I know.
I lost my mom last summer, a week after my birthday.

I so pray for you and your mum and your dad.

I hope and pray that when the time comes, you will be at peace and know that she is not really gone. She is only going to be different.

Love and hugs, Narita

I will send my positive energies and thoughts towards your Mum. Having just lost my Mum (she was 62) I know how hard it is to loose a parent I don't think it matters how long of a life they've had, if it was sudden or a long illness. It hurts.

Make sure you talk to your Mum every day! Someone recently asked me when was the last time I talked to my Mum before she passsed and it saddens me to think I can't remember when.

It is so very difficult to watch our parents age and fail, isn't it, Kaye? I am going through a very similar time with my 86 year old parents and it just breaks my heart to think of life without them... Thinking of you all!
