Lately I've felt like Debbie Downer with what I've been posting. I see that so many other people are in similar situations with their parents. I'm grateful for birthdays...big reasons to celebrate. Friday was my mom's 83rd birthday. Paul and I took her out for dinner...lovely, then back to her place to open presents. We brought along a bottle of champagne to toast her 83rd year. We laughed as the bubbles went to our heads. Delightful evening.
Late this morning, I'm driving up to spend a few days with my dad while my aunt and uncle go on a much needed vacation. I am so looking forward to having him all to myself. Go out for walks, take a drive or two out in the country or just sit outside on his patio and talk. Savoring each moment.....
