Even though, we are continuing the vigil for Kristi's mother, dealing with a massive outbreak of flu (Kristi being the only one among us to fall so far, although my office is full of it), and being pulled in many different directions with end of life issues, as well as our regular days, we are fine and happy. Staying centered and calm is of utmost importance. LM really has the brunt of it all, and my main job is to keep from interfering too much, and just offering love and support where I can. This weekend we will have a little dinner and a visit from LM's sister. Amidst that, I will be dog sitting and doing the cooking.
Walking each day goes a long way to feed my soul, and keep my energy level where needed.
Last night, LM entertained me with a blow by blow description, via cell phone, of Ms G trying to catch some sort of bug that was flying around their house. We all had tremendous fun for about 1/2 hour as the saga unfolded. Alas, the bug eluded the dreaded gray paw/jaws, and Ms G was back to watching Nature on PBS. Seems she has taken to watching a lot of TV lately. Bet she misses her mother's frequent visits, but she is there offering comfort and laughs to Kristi, and that is a most needed commodity right now. There is a pillow I always sat on when at LM's, and he placed it so that Ms G can sit on that to watch TV. Sweet man, and it is well-used. Someday soon, I will be there again. I don't say this at all unhappily. We are fine and know it is what it needs to be right now, as we help Kristi go through the loss of her mother.
Have a wonderful weekend, and love to all.
