Sad Day...

May 16th, 2009 at 08:29 pm

My dad worked with this woman for many years who has no family...never married, no siblings, etc. When she started to suffer from dimentia and other ailments, my parents took the responsibilty of caring for her well being. She was in an assisted living home. She passed away this week. We went today to move her furniture. I wasn't close to her, it just felt very wierd to be dividing up her stuff. And I feel kind of guilty because I was kind of relieved that my parents life will be much simpler now...they were fixing to have to move her to a new home and it wouldn't have been easy with the dimentia.

DH gave me some unexpected money this week so I am in good shape. I have the budget planned for the next month and all looks well. I am very encouraged. Plus my son got his first paycheck this week. We will go open him a checking account on Monday. I am excited about teaching him how to do a budget. No one ever taught me this and I am just now learning it!

    Your parents did an incredibly unselfish thing by taking care of this poor woman. If only more of us could be so giving of our time and energy. I am sure she will sprinkle blessings to your family from her new home.

    I agree with Ray; you should be very proud of your parents to take ownership of this woman. That was an amazing thing they did for her.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. My parents are truly special people and I wonder how I will ever be able to live up to the impact they have on others!
