Family Forever

Not often do I get downright serious on my blog. Funny is fun. Jokes make one jovial. Deadpan can be downright delightful. I love a retirement full of laughter.

This week, humor received a set-back for a bit. My mother was hospitalized with pneumonia. All my family rallied to visit her, to call, to send cards and flowers, and to be there for each other. The health professionals worked wonders clearing up the pneumonia.

Mom is improving, but she’s elderly and has more health issues. Helping her live out her declining years becomes more challenging. But this week’s crisis proved that my sister and I won’t be alone. We found out that our kids, siblings, in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, and all their spouses can be counted on to help, emotionally and physically.

I can’t thank them enough. I hope my family will visit and communicate often and not wait for the next crisis.
