Spring Break?

So, I had a bittersweet visit Home earlier this week.  It had to be a shorter than normal trip since I just don’t have the vacation days to cover all that requires some of that time this year.  I’d rather spend the entire week, so I can pay a visit to more folks, but it is what it is…

I say bittersweet because not everything was great.  I have a family member that is not doing great and likely needs more help than the family can give.  Age and loss have brought about some rough conditions both mentally and physically.  It’s probably time to find a place in an assisted living facility, but I don’t think this decision is going to be made without a struggle.  This has not been easy for my family.  All I can do is hope for the best.

That is definitely a bitter part of my visits Home.  That and the fact that my family is getting… smaller… with the passing of the more recent years.  I am painfully aware that time on this rock is limited for us all.  I have a great family, and it sucks to see them… go.  So, I make the most of the time I have there to visit them and my best friend.  I am increasingly aware of a pending time when there might not be any of those folks left to make a trip Home to visit.  That might sound a bit morbid, but it’s reality.  The best I can do is get up there and spend some time with them and enjoy their company.  That’s the sweet part…  Spend time at Home is always good.
