It does make one appreciate family, friends and the time we have left.
Yeah, I’ve noticed that as well. Whenever something bad happens, things start pilling up.

It isn't a good year, but I'm strong.
Condolences Nat, I'm so sorry to learn about your mom passing last week. Yes, it's been a rough year for older folks giving up the ghost. My sister (89 y.o.) passed in June. Keep the faith kiddo, this year too shall pass.

Thank you.

She was a lovely mother, but with her dementia, in many ways I lost her a few years ago, but she still seemed to recognize me and would smile.

Sorry to hear about your sister. We are at that stage of life.

I'll also pass along my condolences to Nat and Zoisite.

"Stage of life" is so apropos to describe the ascending years, This advancing years thingy sure brings with it some challenges we never imagined when we were just intent on rushing that 16th birthday to get the drivers license.

The pandemic has made it more difficult to spend increased time with those we know are approaching their end of life and has caused me to regret not spending more time with a couple of close friends when it was so much easier to do.

Such is life.

Thank you BruSan.

I was quite worried that because of Covid I would not be allowed to sit by her bedside. The home was amazing. They went above and beyond, to make sure I had time with her. They segregated her in a room away from other residents. They made sure I was healthy and sanitized. So I was able to sit by her in her last few hours.

I've been thinking maybe it's time for me to get a tattoo.

Since I mistakenly quoted your post in a response to Zoisite's; I now have to think of something erudite and witty to replace the missing text.

Nothing comes easy for us seniors. I give up. Well, maybe this - C'est la vie.
