I’ve been working on some crafts, but haven’t felt very ambitious. My sister’s health is declining, as we knew it would, and I’m not sure how much longer she’ll live. Her husband and son have been very attentive. The first two weeks it didn’t seem like she’d live very long, and then in the third week she rebounded after Hospice changed her pain medication and gave her meds for nausea. It’s been sad to watch, and every day I wonder if this will be the day I get the call that says she’s passed away. I’ve been praying that she doesn’t experience a lot of pain, but it seems the last few days have been really painful for her. I hope for her sake, and for her husband and son, that she doesn’t have to be in pain long term, but it looks like it’s going to be a while.
It snowed here yesterday and for November 2nd (also my sister’s birthday,) it was early to have 3-4 inches of snow. Today, the sun is shining, and we went to vote about 11AM and didn’t have much of a wait…We were the 387th and 388th voters, which is high for our small township. I hope at the end of the day that there is a clear winner, and that this election doesn’t linger. It’s seemed to have gone on for months already and I am SO ready for this to be over for all of our sakes. I hear that large cities are preparing for wide spread rioting after the election results are announced, and I really hope they don’t happen. With Covid and the other issues we’ve faced this year, it seems unlikely that we won’t have rioting though, regardless of the election outcome. I wish our country could unite, but I have no idea what it will take for us to pull together as one.
And with Covid numbers up all over the country, we can’t even agree of how to fight this virus. These are the most difficult times I can remember, and things just seem so hopeless with us having very little to anticipate going forward. I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling so defeated.
