It was my mother's 4th anniversary yesterday. Our parent's home is still there. Their mattresses were sunbathed even though no one would sleep on them any longer.
My wife has been to Shikoku to see her parents for a couple of days. She told me vividly last night that they had had Hamburg dinner with a glass of beer. Father in law aged 90 years, living in a nursing home with his wife in severe dementia, has started walking outside again recently. We have presented him a stick and a pair of walking shoes.
Life is short. I would appreciate every moment we are allowed to be being.
