We never know what life will bring. If I’ve learned one thing in this life so far it is -do not hold onto anything too tightly. I am thankful that over the years I have been molded into a person who is fairly flexible, not materialistic and easily adaptable. The way my life has gone- these attributes were necessary for navigating the roads ahead.
It looks like soon, in the very near future we will be moving away from our beautiful little home at the foot of the mountains to Mr. N’s hometown so that we can assist the family in caring for aging parents. Aging and ill parents one of which was given a diagnosis with the “c” word in it today. We all gathered at the hospital for moral support as the diagnosis was given. A very hard day indeed.
So many decisions to be made. So many changes….
I have peace with the decision to move. Moving into the position of caregiver isn’t going to be easy I know. Life isn’t about personal happiness-it’s about love.
We can’t “enjoy the view” while the rest of the family pitches in to care for aging parents.
How soon? I don’t know…we are working on it. It will all fall into place.
A new road. New challenges. New lessons to be learned.
That’s ok. That’s life.
