As I continue to care for my aging parents I can’t help but wonder where did all the years go? When sometimes an hour may seem long, a day may go by slowly and a week? well, sometimes a Friday just seems like it will never get here… And yet, the years just fly by! It makes me stop and wonder why such a difference in the “present” rate of speed vs our “yesterday’s”
I was recently at Rochester General Hospital and there she was, my mother 66 years ago at the age of 22 on the nurses wall of fame… Pictures of nurses from the early 1940’s. Of course, as I stop to look at the pictures it made me wonder… “Where did all those years go?”
I am now watching as my once vibrant, sharp mother can’t remember how to cook any longer. At the age of 88, it seems somehow things are slipping her mind. All those years of nursing and caring for others and now it’s her time to be cared for…
All those years of care taking, makes me wonder… Where did all those years go?
In awe of life and in wonder of all those years!
