Helen of the Yellow Rose has been a participant of One Deep Breath for awhile now. Her ALS has progressed to the point of needing a feeding tube, losing her voice and struggling to be able to type. One Deep Breath has kept her connected to a community. She has recently been moved to another state and removed from her home due to her progression. She had to leave her church family, two of her children and most hurtful, her grandchildren. She will continue to fight but the fear of the unknown brings with it emotional times. I wanted to let her know that even if she can not comment she will remain in our blogging community and thoughts. I will continue to help her participate. The theme this week is mud and that is exactly where Helen is right now, feeling stuck. I'm there to pull you up dear friend.
reaching out from mud that binds
frustrating to relay needs
words stuck like in mud
