God knows what the afflicted need : comfort! My goal is to share the sparkling nuggets of comfort that I have received with other Christian wives who care for a chronically ill husband. After searching for others who are in “the same boat” I found the pickings are slim. Hopefully the topics I address as I make time will bring hope and encouragement. If you have been on this journey for very long you already know this-chronic illness affects every aspect of our lives. By the time we had an initial diagnosis our finances ,family relations, and friendships had already taken a hit. Although I am a relative newbie of eight years on this journey, perhaps there will be a blessing for you.
