our first step-proactive:):):)

well I am just busting with this news,.... I have spent the last couple of days since my last visit to my parents home worrying about what will come next for my mom.... Today I got ahold of a wonderful place that will let me bring my mom for afternoon tea tobegin with... they have an arts program and a musical program and many other things....the greatest part is they have a workshop that my dad can putter around in, or even help thehandy man guy, this will be our purpose o go as far as my mom is concerned and the very best is it is less than a mile from where they live.....I am so excited for my parents... they willnot be moving but they will be able to go when they want to and when my mom feels comfortable my dad will be able to leave her there when he needs some space.... oh please pray that this is the answer that I need for now.... I know it is not the final phase but it is a big step for all of us... I talked to my dad just a bit ago and he seemed pleased with it all......I can see in the future that there will be more needed for my mom, but this is a big start....

Well, just good for you! You got the ball rolling. Like you said it is the first step...oh how I wish my mom and step dad would have done something like that to begin with.
It is a way maybe to transition them into something more when the time comes.
Makes you feel good when you see some positive movement doesn't it?

Love, Meg

We are clapping in happiness for you. Baby steps is the way God taught us all to walk isn't it? Well, then you are moving in the right direction. we will pray for you and your Dad.

Please let us know how the first visit goes with mom and Dad okay.

Take Care
