I am appreciative of comments about my cousin and his wife. They live in Virginia which is far away from me. Fortunately she has a sister who lives close by her. And they both have friends who come over to help. Hospice was there for a while as well as occupational therapy. She does go out occasionally but thinks that he doesn't do well unless she is there. I will keep making suggestions to her about support groups, ant-depressants for her and him, and detaching with love. I hope that she listens.
Life feels good at the moment. I have nothing pressing on my mind. So here's what I'm grateful for today:
- Friends and fellow bloggers who share their experience, strength and hope
- That life has cut me a break many times and now I know that wasn't just coincidence
- That my SO spent a week away at a meeting and didn't have any desire to drink
- That I have enough sense (finally) to be grateful for those things that I took for granted for so long.
