Oh how wonderful that all sounds! I am going to cut and paste it and send it to my brother! The bubbles idea is amazing! Even mom could do that. Thank you so much. I feel like a weenie because, truth be told, my life is so good! I’m fed and clothed and have family! It’s just so hard and I … well, just thank you for your great advice. I will take all of it to heart and do it!
Right now, I am staying back at mom (and dads) old house. It is where dad died last year. He was so so sad. I can feel it now. I have heard people say the second year is the worst because the denial part is gone. And we’ve been working with mom for this whole year. Sigh. Life sure does throw curveballs!
