Cloud in My (otherwise) Blue Sky

I refer to Mom's Alzheimer's Disease as the gray cloud in my otherwise blue sky.
With so much to be thankful for in my faith, my immediate family, my job, my friends, 
my connections at Full Sail...
generally I am able to manage the stress of this one area of my life.

The past couple weeks have been more challenging, 
because serious issues have arisen.
I've felt panicked, stressed, engulfed by the looming clouds...
Yet the sky is still blue...
and God gives me the strength to love, and live on...
able to laugh at some things forgotten,
and determined to make things as right as possible
for as long as possible.
