It has been a rather tumultuous summer for myself and my family...for the last two months my mom has been very ill, so ill that I had to fly to Saskatchewan to help my Dad with her care.
It can be so hard to watch your parents as they age...the difficulties that aging can bring to their lives...the changes that can so unexpectedly happen.
In a lot of ways these past two months have enlightened me and taught me many things. It has been a time of growth for me, an experience that has shown me the power of compassion, love and commitment.
How when bad things happen a family can pull together and be strong and unbreakable...how when one member feels like giving up, another member will step in to lend a shoulder for crying, a heart for loving, and a will to help you carry on.
The battle isn't over but a least we have each other...and no one will ever be left alone.
Treasure your family...as it is the only one you will ever have!
