Things are tense in our home. We anxiously wait for calls every day to let us know how my brother is doing. (We want him home and it doesn’t look like that will happen any time soon.) Since he is in ICU and we have the COVID rules only my sister can go to see him and she is exhausted. Yesterday I got a migraine. My doctor was not in so I had to see another who gave me a different kind of medication that simply didn’t work. He is worried about all the stress and what it is doing to my mind, body, and soul.
So all these factors went into my husband’s head! This is what he decided. He was up in the middle of the night baking a cake. I got up this morning and there was the cake all decorated. It had flowers and read. “Happy Birthday, Just in case you don’t make it nine more days.”
I said out loud “Consider the source, he means it with love.”
