Focus on the Next Generation
We said goodbye to my father-in-law these past weeks. He was 90 and alert to the end. Hospice is wonderful for both patient and family. Don had the time to say goodbye to everyone over the last months and died with his family in attendance for the final hours.
The final events became a family gathering of his 14 grandchildren, many with spouses, and 11 great grandchildren, with # 12 due this week. The next generations became the focus, as it should be.
Death is the price we pay for the gift of new lives. Spending 4 days with our 3 children and our grandson reminded us of that priceless gift. We took the time to enjoy it while remembering the past.
We never know how long we will have with family. My mother-in-law died 40 years ago; my mother 34; my father 14. Use the time you have with family wisely. You never know when it will end.
Take care of your health, including your bone health. Take Control Naturally with Calcium and Vitamin D3. Follow the “Blue Zones” guidelines for the rest of your physical and spiritual health.
