Break for the Caregiver

It has been quite a while since Lena has had a break from the daily routine of looking after me. A wonderful opportunity has come up to allow for a few days reprieve. Our niece, Rachel Lena, is getting married this weekend. Rachel lives in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Lena flew out to B. C. together with two of her sisters, and a brother in-law, for a body guard, for a four day weekend whirlwind visit.

My daughter Joni, has moved in for the weekend to be the substitute caregiver. Together with support from my daughter Sarah, and my son Gerrit, things will work out well. What a blessing it is to us to have such loving and helpful children.

I saw a photo of a licence plate on a van the other day which read: QVERFUL. It comes from Psalm 127: 4,5: "As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:"



  1. Wonderful! Best wishes & greetings

  2. Thanks so much for allowing Lena to join us for the wedding. She was a real blessing and we know you missed her!
