Daily Living Made Easier

QUICK NEWSFLASH: Before we get to the main story, I’m afraid I need to pass on info about the latest threat to our computers. Windows Secrets – one of my best resources for all things Windows – has a mega warning AND some great solutions to a new threat that is out there right now. So be sure you head over to Windows Secrets today, read up on it, and follow the directions. The last thing we caregivers need is computer problems!  I’ll be right there with you, after taking care of the grandkids, the senior mom… 🙂

Now on to "the rest of the story" 🙂 – Caring for our aging parents isn’t always easy. This week, alone, I’ve read several articles that would tear your heart in pieces. Baby Boomer generation children dealing with parents in the end stages of dementia and all the misery that can entail. Elderly adults who are all alone, and not able to keep up with all the day-to-day necessities of life. Each of those articles led me to tears and prayers for the people involved.

Today though, for our Current Events Thursday, I wanted to share a happier story , although it has its bittersweet moments as well. It’s a good reminder that no matter how difficult things can be, they could be worse. I know my mom, who nursed both her parents through many months of health problems, is so grateful she had those months, along with all the years before that. I definitely feel the same with my parents.

This story is about a senior son, and his aging mother who have been separated for 43 years! It’s a sweet video to give you a bit of a smile and to remind us all that these moments, right now, today, truly are, as the mother stated, “the moments that matter the most.”

    What a wonderful story. I used to work in the office next to the Office for the Aging and too often I received communications from family that knew their aging parent existed and wanted nothing to do with them. What a great story this one is, thanks for sharing.

    I’m out of town for this week’s Current Events, and I hear Mr. Linky is not recommended so definitely leave me a comment with your post if you have one. My internet is iffy, but I’m still trying to visit blogs when I have acess.
    Thanks Kaye, that was a great way to start my day!
