Reply to "NOW THEY SEE"

Hi Babyboomer:

Thank you for posting this and sharing with us here. Good for you! You are so right in what you say - caregiving should not be on the shoulders of only one person. You gave your dear mother over ten years of your life with her best interests at heart. Let the phone ring when the family members call...

I have to share that my eldest sister and BIL just left after a week visiting our father. My brother was also here during that week. I was just amazed out how they managed to slip out without providing any true help or support. They are good for another year now - lol (or so they think). I have my plans to disrupt their peace of mind... I am just biding my time to think through what is best for all concerned.

I was talking with a friend the other day about family dynamics. He said that family dynamics never change... I thought that is likely true (especially after this visit from my siblings). I have been mulling on this quite a bit actually. What does it take to change the status quo? And, more important, what will be the likely impact?

Anyhow, congrats to you babyboomer. It looks like you have done just that! At least you have made plans to enjoy your life now. May you be blessed with the best of adventures... You should be free and proud of all you have done!!! Whenever you think of your caregiving days during your travels, think of us and keep us posted...

Love and Hugs from Glenda
