The Bittersweet Days


This is a picture of me with my husband, sister-in-law, mother-in-law and father-in-law at Thanksgiving last year. In such a short time my FIL went from a man who could still drive, live by himself, do his own shopping, and converse with all of us. 

Just since the new year, he’s deteriorated quickly. My husband is bereft. I am heartbroken. When my mother passed away just before New Year’s Day 2017, it was my FIL that let my sob on his shoulder, even though he found it uncomfortable.

This time of life is so bittersweet. Facing what is, is sometimes just too much.
