    Please pray for this HT member who posted gorgeous pictures of her gardens and wonderful articles. We didn't divulge that we are twins and most folks never knew. She left HT when she had trouble in her life..she had her posts taken down. She has had ups and down but continued to hike, do her photography and enjoy a life with nature at its core.

    She was diagnosed last week as she lay unable to walk, feed herself, brush her teeth or her hair. She is fully dependent for care. We do not know if they can improve her mobility...daily her voice
    weakens.... We never know the direction our lives can take...it has taken a year of struggle to get to this point. She is hopeful and we all are doing out best to stay positive during an impossible time.

    Oh I am so sorry I didn't see this earlier. Your sister was SO kind. In 2014 or 2015 my DD#2 and her new DH went to Olympia National park for their 1st vacation. I was of course a worried Mom. I contacted your sister by PM (maybe on another site?) and she graciously offered to be their out of town contact if something happened. No "I don't know you or them" or "too busy". I texted to thank her afterwards. Then we moved into our then new and hopefully last home and life got busy and I was not in touch with her. Looked her up onlinea year ago and didn't really find much so figured she was busy.

    I pray for all on the forums I frequent and will raise her name and yours to the throne of God today and each day. Oh I am just so sorry to hear of her (and your) troubles.
