📷⛓ Photochain Challenge 71 - Hush Little Baby

Hello Friends! Remember me?!

I'm more bogged down now than ever while taking care of my mom as she slowly recovers from open heart surgery and her broken shoulder mends.

The good news is the amazing Valvular Heart Disease & Transcath Valve Team at Barnes Jewish Hospital - St. Louis successfully replaced her aortic valve via a sternotomy at the end of May.

Your continued prayers and positive energies are most appreciated!

Hush, little baby don't you
Hush, little baby don't say a word
Papa's gonna buy you a mocking bird

And if that mocking bird don't sing
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring is brass
Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke
Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat don't pull
Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull turn over
Papa's gonna buy you a dog called Rover

And if that dog called Rover don't bark
Papa's gonna buy you a horse and cart

And if that horse and cart turn round
You'll still be the sweetest little babe in town (be the sweetest litte babe)
Still be the sweetest little babe in town
La, la, la, la, la, la
Hush, little baby don't you cry...

For my entry this week I am once again featuring photos of my darling grandbaby. These precious images were taken over the Christmas holidays.

I miss being able to visit my sweet granddaughter and see her milestone achievements as she grows up, including missing out on her first birthday next week. I admit I feel frustrated, trapped and occassionally angry at times that I'm tied down and unable to travel because as the only living family member I'm the sole caretaker for my mother.

It is what it is.

Hey great to see you post Nina! I know you have more than just your hands full taking care of so much, but it is always good to see an update from you. I can well understand the feeling trapped and the frustration. After all we are just human and that is the work of an angel! Like you say it is what it is, but we have to make the best of what it is till we can change it!🙂

Oh, sweet Nina! @ninahaskin I admire you so much at this very moment. I know how long you have been there for your mom and I also know how hard it is and I also know that you wouldn't be anywhere else in the world except right there.

It is such a selfless act of love, one of those things that you probably passed on to your own daughter. Daughters cannot help but emulate their mom, especially when you have such a wonderful relationship.

I'm sorry that you are missing your adorable grandbaby, and I am sorry for that, truly I am. I hope you are getting some good skype time in and you will be able to catch up soon, I hope.

God bless you, woman. Truly.

Good luck with everything, @ninahaskin. Sometimes things come in waves. And they can be very big waves.
