Mum was so looking forward to the Sunday back at her church which she was very involved in. I have spoken and kept in touch with a ladies circle over the last year but in person service only began today. Getting there was about a 24 hr "activity" - selection of clothing that is appropriate, hygiene, what time are we leaving × 100 !....you get the idea!
The reactions to mum covered a vast spectrum from shock, tears, to " she's doing great", (keeps it together for short times) ..Once again, you get the idea. I felt myself struggling with the urge to correct and educate or explain which I did not feel appropriate at the time maybe because I sure could use people to drop by for visits.
Any advice or experience with similar situation?
