Today I drove down to Geelong (about 80kms) as I do at least once every week, to spend some time with them both for Mothers day. The joy of seeing my Mum on this Mothers day was tinged with just a little sadness. I think I've mentioned before that Mum has Alziemers and today her memory was just a little less than other days. Maybe today I noticed it more or maybe today was a little overwhelming for her and the confusion was evident. The thought process took just a little longer today and it was noticable how hard some things were to bring to the front of her mind.
Taking it slowly is the only way to go now.
Mum loved her table runner and it now sits in pride of place on the table we sit at to chat and drink tea, Dad wanted to know how on earth I knew that the only thing they needed was a table runner. I love you Dad.
This is my Mum and Dad now, beautiful, loving, caring, precious and adored people.
I love you Mum, Happy Mothers Day.
