Today is going to be interesting. It is a doctor day. Because of the illness in our home once a month our doctor comes and spends the day. It helps to tell where we are with hospice, how is the house dealing with Alzheimer and the other health issues.
Her observation is that my husband is getting to the final stages. She suggested that he see any family members that he may recognize from his childhood. We won’t be able to do that until we get my medical testing done this next week.
So today I am going to dig through pictures and agree with whatever he says. Whatever memory he believes to be true, so will I. Today I am going to be gentle and kind. Today I am going to walk outside if I must cry. (He would try so hard to fix me.)
He likes Easter and there is Easter candy in the store, so I think I will make a quick trip and bring back and Easter basket. We’ll go through the photos again. He will share some story and no matter what he says it will be correct and perfect.
Today I choose to love what is, cherish the day and time, and find peace among the chaos.
Do you ever cherish even the hard moments?
