“The thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
Our family has gone through much upheaval over the past few months. Eldercare decisions which we knew we’d one day face, have come before us. The time is now to deal with them.
Despite difficult albeit necessary conversations, my brothers and sister and I have been given a gift by our parents. Strong foundational tools to deal with one another agreeably and sensibly to work towards a solution of what is best for our parents.
Each moment I have spent with my parents in recent days has been a gift. The geographical chasm that came between us has been eliminated due to some very understanding people in my life who fully understand my need to be with my parents and siblings during this time. I am very grateful.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.
