Things have been really different ...
And my families life is going through some major changes.
When my stepfather passed away in June our Mom
was left alone...
We all knew meaning my 6 brothers and sisters and myself
that changes were going to have to be made...
Our Mom is 83 years old and she just can't live alone.
Well maybe she could but my parents home is
an hour and half away from me and at least an hour
from my other siblings... and she really needs some company..
So her house is on the market and it's in Escrow..
Our Mom is going to move to Oregon where a couple of
my siblings and their adult children live...
Well the reality has just hit for some of my siblings and they
are having a real hard time with the change...
It's sad to know that we will never be celebrating Holidays
and having the comfort of their home..
And I'm kinda sure my Mom won't be at my house ever again..
(I guess I too am feeling a little sorry for myself)
But things in life do change and we all have to accept
that our parents are getting older, and that's life..
She's going to have an Adventure!
I'll be going to my Moms house tomorrow and helping
with the last garage sale, and packing things up for her move...
And treasuring every minute with her...
