whoosh

Settling in for the first quiet night since the holiday. This season has been joyous, stressful and sad for us. Our family time is always a joy, albeit chaotic joy sometimes. The sadness and stress came as we moved Mom into an assisted living facility yesterday. I would be less than truthful if I didn't mention that there is also a good deal of relief associated with this action but still a lot of guilt and sadness. Rationally I know that we have her in a good place with the around the clock care that she needs but emotionally it still feels like abandonment.
