The weekend was a moving weekend for me again - this time helping my oldest son put his things in storage at college until he gets his new apt. in August. So once again work, but of course it is done with love.
Today I had a training from work for our new grading system that starts up in August and then I went to visit mom at the nursing home.
For those of you that don't know Mom had a stroke almost 4 years ago which she never fully recovered. On top of this she went blind due to radiation she had a few years early from a brain tumor. So because of this she was placed in the rehab/nursing home because she could not be left alone at home!
She was doing OK but now I have noticed that she does not recognize me and it is so hard to see my mom that was so vibrant, the one that was always there for everyone in the situation she is! I go at least 3-4 times a week and I feel so sad when I leave her. However, today was really sad! She never said my name!
Mom I remember how you loved all of your 7 kids. I remember the bond we had (I am the oldest)- how you would call me to ask for my siblings birthdays -
You gave me all that you had (we had very little growing up) you were there for us!! You loved my boys - they miss you so much - M. is going to be 20 on Friday - R. is 22 and he has a girlfriend.
They miss your silliness - romping on the floor with them - and they have all the throw pillows you made for them.
Love you mom!
