The changing times…

It used to be that as the sun rose from the far end of dad’s balcony, I would pace up and down waiting for him to wake up. It used to be that we would have the first cup (or two) of tea together sitting in the balcony and watch the morning unfold.

Not any more…

Now I just want him to sleep peacefully as long as he can.

Perhaps, sensing the void this morning, my mom came and sat down quietly beside me to have our morning tea.

The new normal!!

    Change is sometimes no fun… but now you and your mom have one common goal…your dad and his comfort and well being… bless you for being such a good son..
