My boyfriend got home tonight. I was glad to see him, but he barely made it through the front door before he was in tears. He's a watchmaker, has been for over twenty years. He said the hardest moment was when he realized his mom couldn't remember how to tell time anymore.
He brought home a few memories. A clown suit that his mom had sewed and everyone in his family had worn at some point for Halloween A plaster of paris handprint he had made for his mom when he went to kindergarten in 1964. It lets you know what's really important in life.

Awww, hugs for you both. To him for dealing with all of this & to you for helping him thru it. We always think of our parents as having super-natural powers, our protectors. When reality sits in & we realize they are mere mortals & they have frailties, it's a hard pill to swallow. He will need you for strength to get thru this very difficult time. GL to you both.
