We're embarking on a new journey in our household. Tomorrow I'm flying to Texas and on Tuesday my mom and I will be driving back here. I won't bore you with all the details; she's been suffering with some short term cognitive impairment for a few months now. My sister has been bearing the burden of caring for our mom and simply can't handle it anymore. As a family and with advice from her doctor we've decided that she should come stay with us for a few months through the holidays until Feb/Mar. Time will tell but we won't be surprised if it becomes a permanent move.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Life has been full of challenges for so many this year - illness, finances, loss of loved ones, etc. Please take a few minutes to be thankful for all the gifts you have in your life. There's so much 'stuffus' in our lives that simply doesn't matter (really it just doesn't) - we can't do anything about yesterday, we don't know what tomorrow holds, however today is NOW. Enjoy every minute of today - things can change very quickly. I've been trying to live my days this way for a couple of months and it's working for me.
(I'll be back to visit with you in a few days)
