#214 That next place with Gabriel and Swallow


I share so much to all of you, that sometimes even all of us need a shoulder to lean on. 
Being that it is getting closer to Summer for me here in Australia. Summer will be a time of turmoil for me, as it is one time that I remember the cooking that my mother did in the kitchen, the days shared at the beach, the smile on her face, her laughter, her scolding and her love of my son. But alas the reason for this being hard for me, is that my mother suffers from severe dementia. Moving her into a nursing home a few months back was the hardest thing to do in my whole life. 

Apart from trying to be the strong one in the family, and putting on a brave face, my heart hurts like no other.  I am now in the process of moving my father to a smaller house near my mother where they can be together and celebrate their continual love for one another. It has been some 50+ years that they have been married and I can only hope myself that I too will share that amount of time and love with someone for that long. 

The turmoil that I face is going through my mothers possessions and their house and contents, and the feeling that I am intruding on their lives together. The little trinkets, the hidden items that she forgot and put down, the letters to us children that she kept, the little tokens of love we gave to them both to say i'm sorry when we were young.  The do I throw out, do I keep, what do i keep, the how can I do this feeling is so overwhelming.  It was going through the DVD collection, which broke me. I found the DVD of Meet Joe Black, one of my mother's favorites, in which she played on the piano to me, the piano that I am making plans to move to my house. I play for you this song below. 

So for all of you, please remember it is 'Dementia Week' and I hope you share with me your love and blessing as I struggle through this tough time.
