Good News




I am finally getting back to posting.  Hello out there, did ya miss me?  I felt like I had no good news to pass along.  Today things are looking up.  For instance we finally heard that my 93 year old Mom, can be placed in a proper full care facility instead of being in hospital.  She really enjoys being around people and her poor health had kept her in a sort of solitary confinement in her home.  My baby brother has taken good care of her for more than 20 years, but it was getting too much for him and he finally admitted that. As in most families there are, and will be, problems when it comes to agreeing about the care of elderly parents (Daddy died in 1984 ),but those of us who are the most involved have agreed that full care in the right facility will enhance her last years. Another piece of good news is that my youngest sis has moved back to where she grew up, namely the house where my brother was taking care of Mom. She has lived in New Brunswick for about 30 years so she will miss that place for awhile.  Her sons are in Ontario now so that was part of the incentive, as well as being closer to her Mom and her siblings.  We are soooo happy to have her live close to all of us again.  Mom especially loves to see her every day.
So, once again, I am reminded that all things work for good.  Take care of your loved ones and take the time to say "I Love You".  As the Stevie Wonder song  says "I just called to say I love you, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart".

First of all:
Yes! I missed you!
Second: I LOVE that song...and you have me humming it now:
"I just called...to say..."
....It's hard to have a better song written and sung than that one. Thank you for that.
I'm glad that your Mom's situation seems to be working for the best...a time for Thanksgiving all around.
Blessings and smiles from Jackie
