The last time my parents stayed with me, we were transitioning them from their beautiful home of many years to an Assisted Living Facility. Although this has been a welcome, and in many ways, a difficult transition, we were happy to bring them back to our home for a visit.
This past week, I totally enjoyed every minute of cooking, cleaning, dancing, laughing, celebrating and loving on my parents. I even took time off from work, just so I could be fully present.
As I have gotten older, the gift of time has become more valuable to me. Quality time, remembering past experiences, and creating new memories are worth more to me than any physical gift I could ever give or receive.
It is a privilege to spend time with our elderly parents. I hope that if your parents are alive, you too can see past differences of opinion, lack of understanding, inflexibility, possible past hurts and be ok with their limited beliefs. Just focus on gratitude and the fact that they gave you your life… That alone is a great cause for a celebration!
And speaking of celebration… On Tuesday, 7/9/19, our daughter, Ashley, celebrates her 33rd birthday! We are so proud of her and the life she has created for herself, her partner, and her children. Happy Birthday Ashley!
Also on Tuesday, Robert and I celebrate 25 years of marriage! I must say, with great pride, that I am grateful that neither of us are the same person who said “I Do” on 7/9/94. Yes, we are older. But what makes our marriage special is that we have grown up together. No matter how difficult or joyful, we embrace each moment as a new way to love each other. I am beyond grateful that we have reached our “Silver Anniversary.” But to me, it is all gold!
I am still excited about all last week’s shows… Such great inspirational people who touched my life. I hope you enjoyed them as well.
