    Hags, your story is amazing, it is like you are describing what we are going through with my Mother right now. It just reinforces my belief that life should be lived to the fullest. And in the last month i have been 2 of my uncles, my grandfather and a policeman who has brought her bad news.

    I too went through this with my Mother, it brought memories and tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing.

    Nicely written.
    I always thought that living for the moment was a silly comment, until I lost dad and now can’t have him back.
    We must live for the moment while planning for the future.
    But if you miss a moment, there is planning to get it back.

    I wrote this a couple years ago, when she still had moments of lucidity. Since that time, she has gone farther from reality. I still visit every week however…ever hoping to get a glimpse or glimmer of her grand old self.
    Thanks all for the kind comments.
