Roles in Life

I have been thinking a lot about how much my personal role in life has changed.

Being a mom of three amazing children, I did the best caring for their needs. Watching them grow and evolve into the amazing people they are today.

Now, I am a daughter of two parents. I always have been, but not only a daughter but semi-caregiver.

It is a much different role. Instead of knowing your efforts are developing or life changing, you see the efforts you give are just so they will be with me a little bit longer. Enjoy the last part of their life.

Moving my father down in February with his wife, I expected to spend much now time hiking, fishing, or just hanging out more. Instead, the decline of his wife and her Supra Nuclea Palsey has robbed him of any time. It has robbed him from the happiness and energy he once had. I’ve suggested getting him more in home care but he doesn’t want to do that for fear she won’t live her last years with love.

My mom has dementia and it is more evident lately. Luckily she is surrounded by lots of friends in her new apartment building.

My husband, just turned 82. He is in great shape mostly but we had a scare a few weeks ago and I had to call the paramedics to the house.

This is my new reality. There are days I am very stressed but I count my blessings every day for having wonderful children, kind parents and an amazing husband. Q
