A daughter's prayers
For so many of us in so many ways. Would that we had a magic wand!
This was my 2022 and my heart is with you and your father. Thank you for placing such tenderness into words that resonate and, strangely, comfort. I wish for peace for you both.
This hits close to home.
There is no win win situation. There is pain and suffering on so many levels. Take care of yourself.
Tender with heart empathy.
As my mother, sisters and I watch my father, who in hospice care, suffer through his dementia, and the caregiver struggles of my mother, this post really struck a nerve with me. Thank you so much for writing it and sharing it with the world.
Thank you Cynthia. Glad you knew him. He did love beautiful blondes.
Kristin, this profound experience is so beautifully expressed. Thank you for sharing these intimate moments ❤️
My heart understands because my husband had dementia and died of COVID while in a memory care facility. I remember the moment when I made that decision - to no longer pray for him to live. As you say, I did not want him to go through that struggle any longer.
If this is current, Kristin, my prayers are with you. I have been where you are. Not for the long years but for the painful decline and prayers. It is good you are writing. You have much within to share.
Thank you for understanding. Wishing all readers of A Considerable Age, a happy long weekend.
I hear you. You’ve captured a struggle so many share. Thankyou - keep writing.
