I will wait…

My sister and I went to see my 93 year old great aunt yesterday, she now lives in an assisted living center. On my mother’s side of the family living into your 80’s and 90’s is the norm. My grandfather is 93 and his sister is 91, sharp as tacks. Anyway, I hadn’t seen her in a few years, I just didn’t make it to Little Rock often when we lived in Florida. She didn’t know we were we coming, and as we walked in she recognized my sister, and then me. She was asking about going to Russia and when I was leaving. Apparently they’ve kept her up on what I’m going through and she was fully aware of they treatment in Russia. Again, amazing. I hope I’m half as sharp as these relatives when I’m their age. She is one of the most positive people you will ever meet, the glass is truly half full for her. She always looks at the positive, never a negative word about anyone or anything. Truly a wonderful example to us all. Her husband, or as she said, her current husband :), is in a different facility to be closer to his family, this is their second marriages after their first spouses passed away. She was able to go and see him recently and she just glowed telling us about it. I can’t imagine not spending my last days with Thomas, but I guess you have to do what you have to do. Again, she never complained about the situation, just said when it’s her time she would be ready to go, because she knew where she was going. I believe that.

Mumford and Sons for you this morning.
