Good morning Karol,

I'm sure you have thought about all those concerns since Ted died. And, it is unsettling to think about what would happen to any of us if our spouses died. In your case, I wish I could promise that I would care for you and Danny, but, to be honest, that isn't a reality, I don't think, because I'm considerably older than you. And, I'm handicapped. However, I want you to know that I do care for you enough to wish I could make that promise to you. You are such a fine woman and many people love you very much. You know what, God doesn't want us to be fearful and we just need to know that He will provide for us.

I feel concern too about something happening to my precious husband. He helps me so very much each day that it seems like it would be impossible for me to be without his help. So, I just put my trust in the Lord and He will guide me if something so terrible were to happen in our lives. I have talked to each of our children and explained to them that I would be okay in a nursing home. I know they are not the perfect answer, but, I would rather do that than to become a burden in any of their lives. Younger families are so very busy anymore, So, I'll be okay no matter when my time on Earth is over. We just need to trust in the Lord with all our hearts. He is God Almighty and has done such perfect works always.

Have a good week Karol. Love, Ruth

Thanks, Ruth, God has provided me with good friends and family through Ted's illness and afterwards. I just have to remind myself of that when I'm feeling down or worrying about things.
