I’ve been checking in with Dorothy, to see how she is doing, but, I don’t get to talk to her. I get the opportunity to talk to the nurse and she always tells me the same thing. “Dot is fine, she is walking around with her friends”. These words are music my ears, calm to my soul and makes my heart happy.
I do miss seeing and talking to mom, and I cannot wait until this 100 year pandemic is over, my guess -by Labor Day- we should all be back to normal – or whatever the new normal will be. I just hope that the assisted living, memory care, rehabs and Nursing Homes and hospitals get back to the way they were before. Where you can go and visit anytime from daylight to dark. Again, I feel for everyone who has someone in these facilities during this lockdown. There is a light at the end of this tunnel and it is a bright one. So, stay safe and be ready.
I did take a few photos of mom and her dad, granny & pappy and her sister and framed them and took to her a few weeks ago. One time when I called – the nurse told me how happy mom was to receive them. They are from 70 years ago – black and white- and she was so proud to show them off to her friends and anyone who would take the time for her to share.
I’m pretty sure Dorothy is having the time of her life- as her life is now- and I’m so happy we moved her from a place going down hill to a place where she is able to bloom, inspire and be content. ( it seems like she is anyway)
Enjoy the day!
Peace & Love,
