The trials and tribulations
I'm back from Wisconsin after passing the torch to my sister. A sister, unfairly guilted, arriving 3 hours later on the doorstep of her parents. Watching parents who were once vibrant, independent, and active, change into a scared and worried couple reaching out to the threads of family which have been worn thin. A couple, fighting fiercely, to keep the independence they once had...only to tire into dependency. Arriving home...to a tired wife, who missed her husband and kept the household going. Yes, getting older has aches and pains, but pale to the trials and tribulations of those around us.
