I’ve been visiting my family in TX all week. I’ve checked my email and facebook, but while my kids watch a DVD and my parents nap……..I thought I’d sneak into the office and update and say hi.
This has been a wonderful vacation with small trips to sights to see in the Dallas area and much time with my parents. It’s hard in many ways too. They are 84 and 81 and changing so much. Neither gets around as well as they used to. Cognitively things are changing and as their child, I just have to be patient and understanding. I’ve felt like crying many times, but I want to keep up a strong presence for my children.
With the sad times have come many laughs and many great meals,most of them out but my mom did greet us Sunday with homemade chicken and dumplings……..oh my stars, the best southern homecooked meal you can imagine!!! I’ve probably gained 10 pounds…..ugh, but ahhh the pleasure. I can diet at home!
I’ve missed writing and reading your blogs, and I’m going to try to read some now.
Sending blessings and greetings my friends, I’ll be home Sunday night! Have a wonderful weekend, and if you have your parents with you still, call or run over there and give them a hug!
