Change of plans


My dad had a stroke last Monday. Probably as a complication to his heart surgery. He is on the mend and luckily suffered only a minor stroke. We decided to cancel our trip abroad though. I couldn’t face being a 12 hour flight away if things got worse. It’s hard watching your parents get older. Knowing that someday the time will come when they are not here anymore with there constant love and support.

Oh I so want him to be a part of me and my daughters life for years and years to come!

Take care

Good decision! Hope your father stays on the mend, and that you are enjoying each others' compagny during these days. Take care yourself, sending good vibes your way (always...but this time a little more!) Hugs LiLi

Warmth and well wishes for your family. It's wonderful to enjoy every moment we can with our family; sad sometimes that it takes an illness or accident to remind us this. Each day is precious. But also, it's all impermanent.
Enjoy a family Christmas together, sharing and laughing and loving.
Take care.

Hoppas att det går bra! Mina föräldrar är också äldre och inte fria från krämpor så man får ofta komma ihåg att leva nu...

God fortsatt jul!
Jag förstår dig, klart att du vill vara hemma. Thailand lär ligga kvar ett tag till. Ser fram emot ett spinnande 2009!
