Practicing the Ministry of Presence
For the last 5 years, I have cared for my mother who is in early stages of dementia. It has been a life changing event as no longer am I a single woman with no obligations. No my time is spent dressing my mom, washing her, diapering her and caring for her. Life is a (Bleep). But I choose to look at it this way: This is where God has me now. She is the face of God that God wishes for me to be with. I don’t know what the future holds, yet for now I practice the ministry of being present to her and her needs. ~ JoAnn Rivers
