Re: [MOL] Angelo



Oh my dear Mary,
How sad that Angelo is not doing so well at the moment. We are very glad
that you had a wonderful xmas together, and we rejoiced that he was doing so
well. Now we join with you in your sadness at this latest hurdle. We will
lift you all up in prayer to our Lord, and may you have the hope and courage
to see you through.....Whatever His plans may be. Are you holding up ok? It
is very difficult to make time for yourself when you are caring for so many
others that you feel need it more than you. But, and I say this from
experience, please, please try to take some time for yourself when you need
it. Even five minutes locked in the bathroom can help.
Hang in there dear one, and keep in touch as you can.
Love Mam and Wayne
