The Mountains Embrace Me

There are rough patches in life.
Events that touch us and change everything.

Whenever I feel that the burdens of life become
too great  ~  I go to one of two places ...
the ocean or the mountains.

The big shoulders of the Rockies embrace me
and make me feel safe.  They provide a place of 
comfort where I regain a sense of peace.

My Mom had a TIA ~ a Transcient Ischemic Attack
She is fine for now, but it is a warning that she
could have a stroke.  

I plan to spend as much time with her as I can, so
I won't be posting as often as I have in the past.

I am just taking life day by day.
I'll be back when I can and until then
Bentley and I wish you peace.

Susan and Bentley


  1. I wish you and your mom all my best.


  2. Take good care of your mother. We will all be her when you return.

  3. you are right we live in the white mountains of New Hampshire and we went to the sea of our youth last weekend. Both give us peace. I love the mountains here they are strong but peaceful and I am so lucky to live here. Good luck with your mom's health I know how you feel and give bently a pat for me.

  4. Susan,
    Take good care of your Mom, I know you will. My Mom has had 2 strokes which as affected her right side and speech. Along with the macular degeneration, it is hard for her and my Dad, as her primary caregiver.
    Love you and Bentley. I will be thinking of you :)

  5. Wishing you and your mom all the best Susan, take care:@)

  6. Oh Susan I'm sending you a big embrace too. Yes, spend time with your Mama:)


  7. Family must always come first Susan. My prayers and best wishes to your mom!
    Take care and let us know how mom is doing when you have a moment. Love to you too Bentley!

  8. I will keep you and your mother in my prayers. It is nice to know that Bentley will be there to help out. xxoo

  9. Keep you and your mother in my thoughts and prayers. We've been through 2 massive strokes since February with my MIL. It's been scary and I can sympathize. Extra HUGS!!

  10. Hi Susan,
    I'm glad that you will be spending more time with your Mom...she needs you.

    I wish her well and blessings to you both.


  11. So sorry to hear about your Mom. You and she are in my prayers. Of course spending time with her is your top priority for now. I to draw strength from the mountains. I feel closest to God when I'm surrounded by their majesty. I feel HIS strength and am refreshed to cope with whatever comes my way. Please keep me posted with your Mom's status.

    Til next time...
    God bless and keep you.

  13. Thoughts and prayers for you and your mother.

  14. Oh Susan I'm so sorry. My mom had a major stroke 15 months ago, thankfully she made a pretty good recovery. She's weak, and need to use a walker but for the most part she's OK. I'll keep your mom in my thoughts and prayers.


  15. Oh Susan ~ I will keep your mom in my prayers. Take care. I don't blame you a bit, spend as much time as you can with your mom. (((Hugs))) to you and your mom.

  16. Susan, I will keep your mother......and you in my prayers. I hope her TIA will just have served as a warning so proper precautions can be taken. Hugs to all.


Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
