I’m sharing the time spent over the last 6 days with my parents.
Helping them both out where I could, fetching their drinks, cooking their dinners and even holding the chair for me dear old mum when she sat down. And by just being there. Watching the love they have for eachother and still at their youngness of age is a delight.
My mum can hardly walk and my dad totally dotes on her doing all he can.
I’ve come home today to my empty flat and its not so empty right now as it’s been absolutely lovely being in their company what a lovely break that was long live our parents
As old and fragile as they’ve become. As forgetful and as marbel less that they are, they are a pair of one. A pair of unentwinning never ending togetherness, and it leaves me in awe of what I’d love for myself.
Old school is the best skool and they don’t make things like they used to any more. Those days are gawn and I now know that I’ve been chasing a rainbow.
I’m gonna really miss them when they are gone.
That sense of togetherness will be gone forever.
The humour and the knowing that no matter what, everything will be just fine, just get yourself together, while knowing that the best place in the world is STILL there.
The last days just gone by have given me the best break that could have come. Albeit to the one place that has the highest COVID rate in the country right now. That’s just my luck really but no, I never caught it.
As pensioners go my folks are young. Dad more than mum but that’s down to his genes. Ha! I got them too 🙂 but I also got my mums, and I just hope that I don’t end up with headaches like they both get every day.
I’m only just learning that I have the same sense of humour as them. Both of them individually and that comes to a point when I have to look at myself and wonder where the hell I’ve been in my life.
My mum and dad in their ways being together bring so much joy and happiness.
When they are on their own tho they don’t talk.
Dad’s stubborn and mum’s anxious, anxious and impatient. A great mix to say the least lol.
I know you might have the same in your own parents and I hope you do. I’m not thinking mine are the best in the world but then again I’m thinking that they are.
If you knew me you’d know them, in a round about way.
