My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

My Mom

My Mom died quietly and peacefully without waking up.
Of all the things and people in the world , my mother was always there for me.. Along with my husband.
She had me when she was very young, losing my father in an accident shortly before my birth. So we two went out into the world together.
She found happiness and heartache but she always had the love of her children and granddaughter.
My husband cared for her too.
There is no describing the feeling of loss.
God bless her .

today

Thanks to all who who have sent good wishes.
Mom continues to fight, she may be frail but should is tough.
She looked at me yesterday but I  not sure if she understood I was actually there ... I hope she did.
I won't be posting for a while , it is too difficult with only a phone plus time needs to be spent with her and not online.. A lesson for us all I believe.

Thank you

My furniture is on the way. Not sure when it will arrive but at least I am not staying in a hotel with 2 curious cats. Well, one curious young cat and one old codger who just wants to nap in a soft warm spot.

The weather is lovely,  chilly at night and bright and sunny days .. I wish I had time to take a walk and appreciate this weather but with the move and my poor Mom in Intensive Care, the cats nap all day while I wait for Mom to wake up and know I am there.
As if it were not all sad enough, she doesn't know I am there .

Yesterday was a day of watching over her, with my daughter who I am beyond proud of and needing to get back there and tend to cats and figure out what will go where and get groceries etc. We went to Moms apartment and tidied up which was a good way of expending some frustrated energy and feeling like we were doing something for her .. I am just hoping and praying she gets to go home and see it .. Today might be the day that will tell. My hopes continue but the signs are not good.

It is all so heartbreaking.

I will post next when I have something interesting to say .. for now, keep those thoughts and prayers coming, I would like to have my Mom around a little while longer .. Thank you. C

Hello Florida

As of yesterday, I am officially living in Florida. I have a gorgeous new home with 2 happy cats and the weather is beautiful and I be happy.
My daughter is  treasure and I shudder to think what this all would have been like without her help.

The dark spot on my happy days right now is that my poor mom had a massive heart attack and is in intensive care ... since I arrived.
We never actually got to say hello and hug.
So everyone please remember her in your prayers and let me get my hug and kisses from my mom.

I have no furniture and internet is spotting so you won't be hearing from me again for a week maybe until I get everything set up.

but at least you know now- We have landed ... Hello Florida !
