When God closes one door He Always opens another

Wow!! Today was such an interesting day. After hearing that I wouldn't be able to get Daron into Laurels of Sandy Creek in Wayland, I contacted Laurels of Kent in Lowell. They were able to set up a tour right away. I got there about 4:30pm today. As soon as I walked in the door I was filled with an overwhelming peace. Since everything has been so hectic about getting him into a nursing facility & finding the right one, I was thrilled with the peace I had. The social worker took me around the facility & showed me the courtyard (where they do cookouts once a month for the guests), the wing that Daron would be staying in & everything else.

I was very glad to see that there were quite a few guys right around Daron's age there as well. Plus, he told me that there were 3 veterans there already. That was a huge encouragement. Then we sat down to talk about what Daron would need care related, how bad his MS is, how the dementia is effecting him, etc. I was able to ask every question that popped into my head & he answered every single one.

The VA is going to 100% cover his care in that nursing facility for the entire time that he is there. I only have to pay for the DirecTV that will be hooked up to his TV ($10 a month) & the land line that I have installed in his room. I have to provide his clothes, but they will wash them for me. Taylor & I will be able to visit anytime we want to 7 days a week. I can even bring my dogs there to see him. I will also be able to bring him to church on Sundays - if he feels up to going.

I am so thankful that the Lord has opened the way for this facility. I had been looking at the veterans home because it is only veterans there. But I was having such a tough time with getting things together to go with the application, I was having problems getting my questions answered, I wasn't able to get in to tour the facility, etc. I have been working on all of that for a month. With Laurels of Kent I was able to get my questions answered, get a tour & see the staff interact with people all within a few hours.

Thank you Lord for your provision, wisdom & strength in this situation. I am so glad that I followed Your guidance once again.

Two Years...How Is That Possible?

How is it possible that two years ago today Daron left this earth and entered Heaven? It still feels like it was yesterday at times. This y...
