Today begins our journey toward a new normalcy. We have never walked this road before and its a little scary. Multiple times a day Anne wants to call one of our Moms. Our lives were so intertwined. We celebrate their entrance into heaven because they both had suffered pain the last months of their lives and now we know they are pain free. We are very happy for them, but we sure do miss them.
Today the last of our family returned to their homes. We thank God for safe travels for everyone. It was sad to see everyone leave. Can’t help but wonder when we will see some of them again. We all came together with Mother. Everything will be different now. We have to figure out how to do this with both families. And we have just begun to think of all we have to do to settle everything. That will have to wait a few more days.
After everyone left we started on laundry, lots of laundry. We hadn’t done any since before we left to return to Florida. We have also been doing some research on new medical alarms. We think we need to make a few changes at Helen’s to try to assure her safety, including a fall detection alarm. We are praying for guidance and wisdom as we move forward.
We did get to do something this evening from our “old normal”. We walked a few rounds on the track with Barry and Donna. It was really great to spend a little while with them getting caught up. And as we were walking toward the track we saw five deer in our pasture. Love seeing any kind of wild life. That’s about it for the day. Maybe things will be more interesting in a few days.
Again thank you for all your support and love.
