While “Escape” is the photo challenge of the week I don’t feel prepared to post the appropriate photos at this time, I may later. I do however feel a desire to escape.

The photo challenge description states:

“Depending on your current mood and headspace, or time in your life, this word can evoke different emotions and conjure a variety of images.”

This is so true, your emotions and moods do change, and at this time my mood is one of lethargy, and low motivation, and to grab my camera, escape, and seek out that perfect shot just isn’t a high priority. My heart just isn’t in it.

Perhaps that is the best time to escape though, an opportunity to get out and clear my head, to think of something else and have a change of focus. And why, you might wonder? Well, I am spending the bulk of my day in the hospital with my seriously ill sister and supporting my mother during this trying time.

I’m a bit surprised as to the effect this exercise is having really. Of course I knew it would be tiring but the rapidity with which the debilitating emotions took hold surprised me. It’s a more draining than I first envisioned and that caught me unawares.

We will soldier on though, we will do what must be done. Sis is moving forward, and even though they are baby steps she is taking they are steps in the right direction. She has many praying for her and the results of prayer and the Doctors efforts are bearing fruit.

Stay strong Brenda, feel the love. Escape your bonds and come back to us.

      Thanks! Today was a blessing, we walked into the hospital room and she was awake! Mind you she’s still medicated and not the most alert but awake she is nonetheless. Progress is slow but we are happy with baby steps.
      I am coping but it’s Mom I’m worried about. The whole experience is very draining, as I’m sure you can imagine.
      At any rate, thanks again,
      Take care

        Thanks for the update and its encouraging to hear about her progress.
        Yes the mental fatigue keeps you really tired and drained and its really hard to keep going, but you sound so loving and strong, they are blessed to have you! 🙂
        Still praying over your situation, God bless 🙂
