Today we reflect and remember those who served and continue to serve this amazing country that we have the privilege to live in...one where there if freedom and democracy. I thank my son, Robert, for giving 4 years of his life for that very freedom that we hold dear.
Mom's nurse commented to me yesterday, "There were 2 wonderful young men here this morning and they had both come off the overnight shift and they obviously love their grandmother very much, were those your boys?" and I proudly answered that they are, I couldn't ask for better sons and I know that mom felt them and their love for her.
Today Alex came with Jim and I to visit mom and he was apprehensive but he did kiss her and tell her that he loves her after I told him that she was just sleeping. Mom smells so good every time I bend to kiss her so I know the aides are doing a tremendous job on keeping her clean and comfortable and I will forever be grateful to the staff at the Hospice Inn. I have actually been thinking about doing some volunteer work there in the future and I plan to discuss that with the social worker on staff.
I hope that whatever you are doing on this holiday you are spending quality time with someone that you love.
