I turned a page in my big book of life !! Yesterday was a very emotional day for me,my MIL finally got a call from her caseworker that she had a room ready for her in the nursing home, and yesterday December First was her first day there.
We were there at 10 am and brought her with 2 big suitcases of clothes, they meet us at the door and could not have been more welcoming and caring towards her and my family.
After we toured the complex and saw all they had to offer, spent most of the day there with her getting a feel for the place. When I left I had such mixed emotions but I must say I felt she was in good hands and I felt like the weight of the world was lifted from my shoulders.
My MIL was all smiles and seemed happy to be there.She had already made 2 friends ! She asked us to come today as there was a big Christmas party for them this evening with a sing along. Is that wonderful or what !!
Today this is how I feel, like I am in this egg just trying to break out and see the world, letting light in my space for the first time in a very long time.My world was a dark place since John passed away...... it still is...... but I am seeing light ....
