Words are powerful and hold the keys to bring healing, play and joy, making life extrordinary. Words can also shift the world into a better place.

This is sad to me, as I have come to where I also see my Mom slipping away, Marie. She loses what words she would like to say and in so many other areas of her daily life is gradually fading. We have time to hold their hand and hang on to our memories. They loved and taught us so much.♡

They did teach us so much Robin. Sometimes there were lessons we didn’t know were lessons until we think about them in retrospect. For me, there were so many joys, even in my dad’s last days. He couldn’t move much…but I’d take his wheelchair outside to feel the breeze or watch the birds. Often, I would play his favorite music and watch him rock back and forth in his wheelchair to the beat. He couldn’t say anything…but he could feel so much!

I like how you mention he could still feel so much. I agree with this and liked your simple but meaningful ways you connected with your Dad. Beautiful.
