I want to make sure that I capture not only this journey we are on, but I also hope to remember the times we've shared in the past...good and bad. I guess I really want to celebrate Bob & Jo Ann's life, recognize how hard they have worked and how hard their lives have been.
There's nothing really new to report...my mom continues to slip away...ever so quietly...a little each day. She is alert and able to speak but...she rarely makes any sense. God love her.
I've been thinking a lot lately about Christmas and how much we all loved it when I was a kid...memories have been simmering that I haven't thought of in years...like the year my mom put up a silver tinsel tree instead of a real tree...how utterly mortified I was...I was 5 years old and felt as though Christmas had been stolen from us.
I've also uncovered a ton of old old OLD photos that I hope to share. I'll be scanning them and including them in posts over the next few weeks.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. And...I hope you will continue to read this blog. I promise to not be a Debbie Downer...it really is true that getting older is not for the faint of heart...but I promise to share the good, funny, entertaining, (hopefully) enlightening with the the sad.
All the best,
