The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
what Shirley said in todays Gratitudes...

about having more than enough... made me think.. |
So many people seem to get hung up on money, and when they become older realize money is NOT the important thing in life, it is family and love.. As I sit with my Mother and talk to her * when she will open up to me* , or simply hold her hand, I dread deeply the day I will not be able to talk to her, or hold her hand anymore. It saddens me so deeply right now, even more so because its a holiday and I know in my heart she will not be with me next Christmas.
So having enough, yes.. the best part of life.
and I am so grateful to have all of you.. I think of you every day, even if I am not posting , these last almost 2 years have been the hardest of my life since Moms diagnosis.. she has held on longer than I thought she would..

Thanks for sharing with us. Looking back on the final days with my parents, it was certainly sad mixed with relief that their suffering was over. Mostly, I remember it as a rich time, sharing the dying experience with then, helping them leave the world just as they helped me into and through it. Holidays are hard.|
I think of you often

and the mixed blessing of having time with your mother and the stress that goes along with caring for someone that is terminally ill and whisper a prayer for you and your family. You are so right that it is family and love that are the most important. I wish for you a holiday filled with love and enough joy to overcome the bittersweetness. |

Yes, it is, indeed, oh so hard...but also extremely rewarding. You're making "forever" memories with the time you're allowed with your dear mom.|
So true. It is
