Dec 19 2012 in Caring for Parents and Kids by Jo
Knowing me I’ll be moving in thousand different directions over the next few days, not to mention the world is scheduled to end anyway so I figured I’d better wish my caregiving.com family an early holiday greeting now, at 3:00 am while I was thinking of it.
The picture by the way is of the Christmas tree in my Mom’s nursing facility. Mingled among the ornaments are pictures of the residents current and recently passed. When I first realized that, it took me a few days before I could go up and look closely at the tree. Mom’s picture is there of course… as is Dad’s.
Christmas for us will never be mistaken for a “hallmark” commercial but it is full of love and mutual support. I wouldn’t trade my holiday with anyone.
MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone, from our home to yours !
