Quotes needed. I'd prefer a scripture post, but any encouragement quote is welcome. Thanks. *eta*
My BF of 20 years is batteling a TBI. She and I had a falling out last year. Her daughter is my God daughter, and regardless of the issues we went through, I love her more than words can describe. We are in contact now as of this incident, as I am sure many of you can understand with issues you might have dealt with in your lives, love knows no boundaries.
I am scared. I am 2000 miles away and can do nothing to help her through what is going on with her condition. Her family tend to take Dr's at their word, and so far that has been detrimental for her. I believe she received poor care from day one, and has continued to received sub par care from then on. Speaking is an effort for her at this point. She has 4 kiddos. The youngest of which is my God Daugter. She is 4.
I need scripture to send to her. She asked me to send anything to empower her faith. I'd really appreciate it if you Christian moms could give me some passages about strength, courage, faith, hard times, etc to send to her.
For those of you of any different faith or belief, I'd love poems, inspirational quotes about beating the odds, staying strong, etc.
It doesn't have to be a Christian Scripture, I just know that helps her, and that is what she asked for. Any uplifting message would make me extremely grateful.
Thank you in advance for your help.
*i knew you ladies would have amazing quotes. I am putting together a photo book of our lives for her. I am going to put these quotes on each page. Thank you so much. It really does mean the world to me!! Tears. !!* It's very hard to listen to your friend all of a sudden talk like someone who was born with a disability. Her short term memory is not there right now, and her vision is shot. Light is her enemy. She is in terrible pain day in and out. she cannot walk on her own. You can tell its like running a marathon just for her to say a simple sentence. She can't get out words she needs to, or remember the names of things she should. It's awful. We have no idea what is still causing her to slip further away from us and she is scared. She signed a DNR a few weeks ago. She is terrified of being left a vegetable. It breaks my heart. Thanks again. I appreciate all of it!! *
Pic of her in the hospital visit #4 with two friends. I so wish I could be there. She is in for the 6th time now and being transferred to a major teaching hospital tomorrow. Hopefully then we will get some answers.
Pic of us the last time she visited me. About 1.5 yrs ago. :-) tat shop. Lol
