Hey Debi. How is everything on the home front? I really hope that Ken has been feeling better rather than worse and recovering from his unexpected trip to the hospital.
I also hope that you have also called your kids and asked for help. Don't feel bad about asking.... even though you feel like you have given plenty of direct hints!
As an adult child I am probably still naive to any needs my parents might have..... especially after them having provided for me for so long. I still know that if I really need help I can go to mum and dad. I'm almost 30... not old by any means but old enough now to know that there will come a point in life where my parents need me to stand up and offer them a helping hand. It is only a natural progression in life. But unless my parents come to me and tell me that they need the help, how would I ever really realise that they needed me to stand up?
My parents and I have a great relationship and are very open. Heck, I've even loaned them money when it was required like they do in return. It's just the simple things that I wouldn't notice. I'd probably need a kick into gear as well.
Thinking of you always.
