A Good Fences Hello

Hello everyone.  I'm sure missing you all.  I'm doing better. I've been able to get a handle on things and with the help of the Lord Jesus I'm coping much better. I've also been put on some meds to help me get through this situation. I think I may still need something for my blood pressure...it's not real good. 

Dad is still declining and will be for awhile. He has vascular dementia brought on by a mild stroke that he suffered sometime last year.  They can't even tell us when the stroke happened but my it sure has affected his mind.  It's been very hard on my Mom to care for him. 

I'm sure there will be bad days ahead and I know I will make it through once again with the help of my heavenly father. 

Still not sure how often I will be around but I wanted to update you all today and give YOU ALL a great BIG THANK YOU for the love and support that you gave in your comments on the last blog post. 

You guys are all the best and its amazing how you can feel like family when you haven't even met someone so thank again. 

Love and hugs to you all.

So today I'm sharing some rural country fence settings.

Hi Felicia - gorgeous scenes! So glad that you are feeling a little better. I know how difficult this situation must be for you - I went through much the same with my Dad - bypass surgery made his dementia worse. Sending hugs and prayers your way. xo Karen

Hello Felicia, I am glad you are feeling better! I always enjoy seeing your lovely photos. My dad also had Dementia. :(

Your rural and fence scenes are wonderful. Enjoy your day and the rest of the week!

Dear sweet Felicia, know that you are in my prayers still and I am so thankful to hear you are getting help and know the Lords comfort through the days. I sure hope your mom and dad will know Gods hand upon them too.
I always love seeing your beautiful photos of Pennsylvania farmland. There's nowhere quite as beautiful!
God bless in the coming days too.

PS I have put my photos on a new blog Christineandhercamera.blogspot.com if you have time to check it out.
Hugs!

I haven't been to your blog for some time and directly went to the last post. I'm so sorry that you feel so depressed, but when I read what you are going through right now I can understand. I'm glad that you're feeling like you're coping better now, and I do hope that you will feel even better. I'm sorry to hear about your Dad, and all the difficulties that come with it. I am thinking of you. Big hugs - and I love these two shots.

Ileana said...

Welcome back, Felicia!

Bill said...

Lovely shots, for sure!

Ida said...

Both your country fence scenes are so lovely. - I'm so glad you posted them. - I'm also very sorry to hear about your dad. My own mom is suffering from short term memory loss and sometimes it's difficult to deal with her so I sort of understand. - Please continue to blog when you can. I find it to be theraputic and it helps to deal with every day stresses when you have an outlet. Take care of yourself and know you are being thought of.

Good to hear from you! Sending you strength and good thoughts to help you deal with this stressful time.

Brian King said...

Gorgeous farms! We'll keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers!

Take care Felicia. I think of you frequently and remember you in my prayers (while missing your great rural countryside pictures)!

Beautiful photos, and my best wishes to you and your family.

Paul said...

More gorgeous scenes from your beautiful valley!

What a friend we have in Jesus, Felicia you are in good hands!

Stephanie said...

I am happy to see you posting again. A hard time in dealing with a close member of family with Dementia. Sending good wishes to you and your family. Love your images posted today.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

enjoyed the pictures...and my prayers go out to you. I cared for a family member for 5 months who had dementia and it was very exhausting, frustrating, ripped the heart out of my chest. So...hugs and empathy

Rose said...

Such beautiful photographs...glad to hear you have a little bit of relief. I have kept you in my prayers.

Melissa said...

So sorry to hear of your rough time there! I've been off the blog myself for most of the summer, and haven't been following everyone closely for a while. Your terrific, bucolic farm scene drew me in. Glad you are at least doing a little better! And hope the situation there will continue to improve!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Gorgeous views! Glad to hear from you- and I'm so sorry about your dad. Dementia is hard on the whole family and my only advice is to spell each other when you can. It's good to get away for a few hours. Still sending up prayers. {{hugs}}

NC Sue said...

I've just found your blog, and reading your post I'm finding I'm not sure of the "back story" about your illness. But I know how taxing I found it when I cared for my dad during his last years.

It seems you have a supportive internet community. Perhaps it's a good thing you took the time to post.

I loved the photos you shared - beautiful scenes.

I hope to see you at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/08/bennett-place-bit-of-history.html, and please join us each week for Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday)!

Thanks for the update. It's good to hear from you. Lovely shots. Blogging is the best--lots of great people.

Katarina said...

A big hug from me to you! I hope you will feel even better soon!

Nancy said...

This has certainly been a very difficult time for you and I am so sorry. Glad you were able to post as these shots are awesome. I pray you will feel better soon....

Love hearing that you are feeling a bit better, Felicia!
Strokes don't hurt, they just happen. And if nobody realizes
the difference between before and after right away, it might
be too late for help. I'm so sorry hearing about this.
My dad is a bit down himself, his walking gets worse and his
last bit of eyesight is fading. But he's 91, so I guess that's
quite ok.

Have a beautiful weekend Felicia!
Möwe

Glad you are feeling a little better Felicia, dementia is so devastating for families to have to deal with, sending healing energy and lots of positive thoughts to you and yours. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures again, we have missed you! Hugs, Deb xo

Mascha said...

Glad, that you are back (I haven't managed on thursday to visit all the fences). I feel with you: it's so sad and takes a lot of energy, when the parents are ill (I have only still mother, 88 and needs many help)... and really you can nothing do -
Hugs and prayers for you

bettyl-NZ said...

Sorry to hear about the things going on. I will keep you in my prayers.
