A Rough Day.........
Monday, January 26, 2015
I received a phone call today, informing me of the death of one of my Mom's best friends. She stood up for my Mom at their wedding in 1944. My Mom will be 91 years old in May and this is her last friend from her past. I talked to her for a couple of hours and though she will miss this woman, she is HAPPY for her. Her health had been failing, and Mom had been worried about her. She is glad that her friend did NOT have to suffer. She is worried about what will happen to her dog now. The dog is 12 years old and she hopes that a neighbor who really likes the dog will take her in for her remaining years.
As I talk to my Mom about how her life has changed in just the past 15 years (since my Dad died), I cannot help but think about what my life will be like if I live to be 91. It is a very sobering thought and I hope to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Being a member of Spark People for the past 6 years has definitely put me on the right track.
