Today Dewey and I step into a new life chapter. His Mom, Cherolyn moves in with us to begin her transition from hospitalization to hospice. While not a situation any parent or child wishes for, it is something we have chosen to do – willingly and faithfully. I’ve been told I’m crazy and naive. Probably right.
I don’t know what lies ahead nor how long this will last – which, like most worthwhile things I’ve done in life is probably for the best – because if I knew up front all the hurdles ahead I’d have said “no.” So, with our knees knocking and our heads bowed – all three of us say YES – knowing full well we will never be the same again.
This is Cherry 3 summers ago at her grandson Tyler’s wedding, and is how I hope always to remember her.
With Lorie and Dewey
