Well the groceries are semi put away. There are a few things I need to find a place for but I don’t have time to do it right now. One reason it may take me awhile to decide just where I am going to store them. That’s always fun!
I do have to plan a laundry day and I think that will be Wednesday as that is also Mom’s Laundry day. So I will do the laundry in the morning and visit with her in the afternoon.
I am sure she will be happy with a break from us being there every morning. She has a schedule she likes to keep and we try to abide by that.
Norm and I are going to be looking into possibly next year putting our trips on hold and staying here in Missouri to help with Mom. There are still a lot of details we need to go over and decisions to make before we announce what we are going to do.
Yesterday Mom was being her independent self and scared us. It was something she shouldn’t have been doing and she waited till my brother left before she did it. Norm then ask if I had thought about bringing our rig up here and just staying for as long as we are needed to check on her daily and be here if she needs us. I don’t know how I was so lucky and blessed to have married such a wonderful man as Norm. I am grateful for his thoughtfulness and caring. You never really think about your parents getting older and needing you to help take care of them. To be there to do just a few things for them daily and listen to them talk about their lives. They need someone to listen to them and let them tell you their stories. I feel I should have realized this sooner but I think I was to close to the situation and sometimes what we want is the main thing on our mind. This visit has been an eye opening experience for me and has made me take a long hard look at myself as a person. I have found there is always room for improvement in my life. So I am working on that.
Thanks for listening and I appreciate each and everyone of you.
Hope all of you have a Special Sunday filled with Joy.
