Life is a balancing act!

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

On Sunday night, 6/5, my 94 year old mother fell in her bedroom (not in the bathroom as I was originally told). She landed on her face, breaking her nose. She also has 2 black eyes. Yes, she looks like she had been sparring with Mohamed Ali.
Mom is back home now, and is recovering. She is more willing to use her walker, and to put a cold cloth over her eyes. Life is fragile. I want to hold on to my mom and keep her safe, but need to also let her live her life the way she wants as much as possible.
What a balancing act!
We all have to live this out in our own way. I suppose that it is how we care for those that we love most.
