Finally, I get it

Often times when visiting my mother in her care home I would find her in her small room staring blankly at the wall. She would never tell me what she was thinking but now that I’m in a similar situation I know she was thinking about all she once had but had now lost. Finally, I get it.

"You never miss your water till the well runs dry." And i wish I would have visited my dear ole' parents more and listened to their advice back in the day. I sure do miss them now.

I'm realizing it wasn't that great for my aging parents - tho they weren't complainers. I think about myself in a nursing home like mom at some point. I don't like to visit that thought very often.

When parents say to kids "go to ur room & think about what you've done" it's really good practice for what you'll do every night as an adult
