A thousand thoughts are running in my head this morning.
I was like a child waiting for Christmas or their birthday party this morning, when I jumped in the car and drove to chase the sunrise at the overlook spot coming up the hill. I know a lot of that excitement is in the fact that I will see Ken tomorrow! I know he is packing and planning his travels today. The last few weeks have crawled by and I just know this next week will fly.
I want to show him this and that and go here and there and eat burritos and tacos and green green chile with him. I want the weather to hold and I want to watch his expression as the sun rises over canyons and take him on walks in the mountains and..and..andâ€¦
The reality is we will do what we can around dad. I have been prepping dad a lot on how to live alone. Resources and phone numbers; neighbours and friends are in place. Routines are established, pills are sorted, reminder signs are everywhere for him. He will need to choose how he spends his days.
I guess all of us need to choose how we spend our day.
