The Happy Now Blog Link- Up # 12

In Happy Now by Jen18 Comments

Welcome to the Twelfth Edition of The Happy Now Blog Link -Up!

The Happy Now Blog Link-Up happens EVERY Tuesday, so come on over and share the happiness!

Before we start the hop today, I want to share with all of you what is going on around here. Last Friday morning my mother had a stroke. The weekend was spent in the midst of testing, tubes and lots of  uncertainties. Today she was transferred to a rehab unit for an intensive 3 week rehabilitation program. This is good news, but the future looms with many more uncertainties. With everything that happened this weekend both personally and nationally I have been reminded just how very quickly our lives can change. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring, and truthfully I don’t think I would want to know all of it anyways, but what I can do is to right now, choose happiness in order to make whatever time I have today be the best it can be.

So thanks for sticking around and I am looking forward to seeing all of the great posts you share today!

Rainbows, rain and stars; what do you see?

  1. So sorry to hear about your mom, Jen, but I’m glad she’s feeling better. Thank you for hosting this week and for spreading a little happy in our Tuesdays. Wishing you a great rest of your week!

  2. Jen, I am seriously so very sorry to hear about your mom and hoping that each day she gets a bit stronger and better now. My dad had a stroke and heart attack about 3 years ago and has improved quite a bit since. Definitely is scary how things can change with the blink of an eye. Have you and your family in my thoughts and prayers now. Also, thank you for featuring my post that I linked from last week here today, too. Hugs <3

  4. Hi Jen, we can never know what challenges life will throw us, which is why it is so important we appreciate things. It is amazing how the body can recover and by the sounds of it everything is being done to help your Mum after her stroke. I am sure that the next three weeks are going to be hard going for all of you, but if your Mum is a little toughie, she’ll get through it with noticeable improvement.

    Sending you and your family huge hugs.

      Everything really is being done to help her recover. It is amazing, but she is in therapy for 4 hours a day! Right now she can’t move her right hand and I hope through therapy she can learn how to function more with her left.

      Thanks for the hugs I will take them :)

  5. I am so sorry, Jen. I’ve been where you are and it is a HARD place to be. Praying for you, your family, and especially your mom. BTW, is the picture in your family history post on your personal FB page your mom or your grandmother? Absolutely beautiful!

    Thanks for your comment and invitation back today — I have missed your linkup and your company! I have been out of town for almost a month (don’t ask…). ;-)
