Yesterday I took Dad for a ride. We got him into the car, which is quite a task, but he loves to go for rides. I asked him where he wanted to go, and he said that St. Mary's reservoir was really nice. So off we went. I just had Nicole with me for the day and she loved just playing in the water and having a little time alone, away from her brothers. It was a special day. We were able to help Dad onto the picnic table bench where he sat and enjoyed the scenery for a while. Living in a facility and having to rely on others for all your needs is very hard for him but he never complains and has a very good spirit about it all.
I am the Mother of 7 grown kids and Grams to 14 of the most beautiful and loving Grandkids in the whole world. My family is my life. My husband is working in Iraq right now so I try to keep busy so I won't miss him too much.
