Sunday Reflection...

The events of this past week have been challenging.  My 92 year old mother has been hospitalized with a stroke.  While at her assisted living apartment this week, I found a quote she clipped from the newspaper, and I'm sharing it today.

I'll be absent from my blog for the next few days until things return to normal and I have time for blogging.

"How far you go in life
depends on you being
tender with the young,
compassionate with the 
aged, sympathetic with
the striving, and
tolerant of the weak
and the strong.  Because
someday you will have
been all of these."

~ George Washington Carver

May God bless your week!


  1. So sorry about your Mother. Praying for you and your dear Mom.

  2. This is so true, and hopefully we take it to heart. If we're not already we will one day be the weak or striving and hopefully there will be those compassionate enough to consider us then.

  3. Phyllis, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I will be praying for her and for you. Take care.
    Hugs, Beth

  4. Oh, Phyllis, I'm so sorry to read of your mother's stroke. You and she will be in my prayers. That is a wonderful quote, and oh, so true. Take time to take care of yourself in the midst of all this. Sending you hugs.

  5. So very sorry to hear of your mother's illness, Phyllis, and I will certainly keep her (and you!) in my prayers!
