Please help yourself to a cookie. I baked them last night just for you.
I want to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart for your kind, caring, sweet, touching & compassionate comments on my last post. I really debated whether I should do that last one. Partly because I didn't want to put something sad on my blog and partly because I tend to keep things like that to myself. I'm not really sure why, but I think it's because I don't want people to think I am looking for sympathy. Silly, I know - but what can I say, that's me.
I honestly wasn't prepared for such an outpouring of support. It touched me deeply. Some of you have had to deal with Alzheimer's personally and I can feel for you. All of us deal with sadness, illness and loss at one time or another. Unfortunately, that is part of life.
Please know that your kindness has really helped me at this time. The conference call we were supposed to make to my Mom on Monday has been postponed until tonight and now she may be moving to an assisted living here instead of Michigan. There is a lot up in the air. Again that's the way it is with all of us scattered around. I will be relieved after the call is made and we can move forward with a concrete plan. I don't like living with everything so unsettled. But, for now I am trying to think of the good things that can come from this big change and not get overwhelmed by the things that could go wrong. As my husband tells me every night, "we will get through this". I know he is right. I just wish we were through it right now. If my Mom heard me say that she would say that I'm wishing my life away. Ha ha.
Tonight before we call my Mom I will be re-reading all of your lovely comments. I know that they will give me a warm and peaceful feeling ~ just what I need to face the task at hand. The power of words - isn't it wonderfully amazing??
Now, I really do hope to be able to get back to my regular blogging. I just feel like this whole thing has been occupying all of my thoughts lately and I couldn't even think of things to post about.
I hope you are all doing well, enjoying your summer days & keeping cool.
It has been so hot here. The past couple days I have had to water some of my container plants twice because by afternoon you would have never known I watered them in the morning. While I was out watering I noticed that one of the impatiens growing out of the crack between my steps is blooming. You can see it below.
