Just want to say thank-you to everyone for your sweet comments and support. I am getting a feeling that some of you may think from my previous post that my mom has passed...not so...she has been very very sick and continues to battle a host of serious ailments that keeps her in hospital. We all tried our best to look after her at home but we just couldn't give her the professional care that she so badly is a continuing battle as I mentioned...but we are staying positive and hoping that she will be able to rally.

 Again you are all so kind and thoughtful...please keep sending all those wonderful well wishes.

 Hugs Susan

On Family

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 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 it is the only one you will ever have!
