First a customary warm welcome to anyone who has joined us this week and especially those who have shared their problems with us. I hope we've been able to help you in some way.
We are like an encyclopaedia! There's so much first hand experience here of almost every possible situation that carers find themselves in. So thanks for being a part of this A-Z reference work for knowledge and support!
How was your weekend, other than wet and windy for many?
I waxed lyrical on Friday about the beautiful colour of the tree just outside, and then on getting up on Saturday, watched as high wind tugged at limbs-full of leaves and I could see them floating upwards and away before all coming to rest outside the front door of the apartment block. It's going to be a treacherous walk to the pavement this morning, as the leaves are now piled high and are slippery from rain. I'm only so glad I took the time to really look at the tree's Friday beauty before it all vanished in front of my eyes!
It's a reminder that all things march on, wanted or unwanted. Nothing remains the same for long. All things are in a constant state of flux, even things that look immoveable, like mountains, and sometimes it can be a comfort to remember that.
Who knows what the coming week will bring? Let's hope that, for most of us, there will be at least some small sparks of light and happiness.
Take care everyone, in what is a really uncertain point in time.
