Today I am not here to cry in frustration, or vent, or ask desperate questions - which I have done previously and am so grateful to the people who visit this forum. I just wanted to share a little slice of life that I witnessed after visiting my mother at her nursing home. Several family members were there visiting with her, actually there were four generations. As we all were leaving, a church youth group came in to sing so I rolled my mother next to a lady, Miss Angie, that she always eats meals with who also had some family visiting. As I left, my mother and I blew each other a kiss and I turned back once more to see Angie patting my mother’s arm and caressing her cheek while my mother smiled. She was so happy to have my mother sit next to her! We took care of my parents for many, many years, and we are still getting used to her being in a nursing home. I just wanted to share this sweet moment. I have often been encouraged on this site by members sharing sweet times with their LOs. Even if they are few and far between!
