Latest News from Joy

We received another blow today concerning my Mom’s health. Therefore, please excuse my absence from social media. I will still pull this story from this site on Sunday or Monday and will try to get it out. I just don’t have the heart for it right now. Thank you for your understanding.

    Oh Joy, I’m so so sorry. Obviously our prayers weren’t enough. But I will keep trying. Much love to you and your family x

      Your prayers are enough. Thank you so much, for them. Our Mom is a strong woman who is standing strong in her conviction. You would be proud of her. My sister, Joy, is just like Mom. Firm in faith.

    Prayers for your mom and family. Your writings are such a wonderful retreat for me and others. I pray you find comfort in knowing that although we don’t know each other, we are concerned for your hardship.

    A great big THANK YOU to all of you, especially to my little sister, Rita for her replies. Our Mom is amazing. She is still filled with joy and a fierce determination to look positively at every situation. I want to be just like her. I’m not quite ready to write a happily-ever-after yet, but Mom keeps after me to quit worrying over her and get busy. Soon.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you as well. You take care of your self and your family. Then, when you are ready to write again, we will be here ready to read your wonderful stories.
