Maybe is not that difficult afterall

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Yesterday was my mother's in law day.
I had to stay with her all day long (her caregiver's day off).
I did my very best for her to have an almost smiling day; i had fortified myself against seriousness with a special playful attitude, i dyed her hair, which together with a face cream was the second most asked favor by this old teenager and to my luck my best friedn Eleni came in my company and help .
Eleni is like myself only "reversed", my sign is her ascendant and my ascendant is her sign.
This gives us a chance to balance and a mirror to look at each other flaws and strengths in a favorably detached way..
Her heartful laugh ,this "have always something to say or a story to narrate" and most of all . her proven LOVE fortification, were the most precious tools to get over a difficult day.
The day finished with my MIL laughing and feeling as happy as possible - on given circumstances- she declared that we had such a wonderful time together and came almost running with her walker at the door to see us off and wish us good night.
I am sure that the hint is to treat her as a little girl.She may almost have forgotten she had become mother, grandmother, wife ....but she will always be that young girl she once was.

I guess this is one of the ways God is helping some of us to pass through this difficult point in life.
So, to resume, the day was a difficult but good day.
I didn't eat too much,
i once more witnessed the priviledge of having such a good friend
Today i am feeling full of energy and power.
I wish you a good day!

    KLeoniki, I am so happy that you gave some of your joy
    to your MIL. Sounds like you all had a wonderful day.
    Mind over matter isn't it? Whether to be happy or sad
    that is.
    I am not sure what I will be doing for Easter yet. I will go
    to church tomorrow as I love the Epitaphio. As for The Anastasi,
    it is hard for me to get to church because there are no buses at
    that hour of night to the Greek Church. I hope you have fun and
    enjoy yourself. Lots of love my dear friend..
    Filakia kai Kali Anastasi.
