This has been a hard week. My Mom has been in the hospital since Friday so I've not been home much. It's sad to see her health failing, she was strong for a long time. Her dementia keeps her from being able to tell me much, but when she woke up one time she was making ice cream with her Mom... a favorite memory she used to re-live. I can see expressions that help me to understand her feelings, even though she can't speak. So many helpful people all along the way to give me hope and courage, placed there "strategically" I'm sure! I do feel a strength that comes from my faith, it's there even on the darkest days.
At this stage of my life, the one thing I can count on is that the horizon is always changing. I really never know what the day holds until the sun comes up. But one foot in front of the other is how I make it, and for America that's how we will overcome the many hardships we are facing right now. Working together toward a goal, it's senseless to lay blame and complain. Moving forward is the only answer and we can do that if we set aside party affiliation and focus on the task at hand. I'm in line to do just that.
