you just never know....

Life is hard to figure out...Mrs H the 95 year old lady I work for on the weekends is tired of life and wants to die. Her family does not want to put her in a Nursing home, because she'd really be unhappy and end up calling them at all hours to get her "out of HERE!". I've explained things to her, how much better it is to be at home where she still has some sort of control, but she's tired of living. But still she's here...

Yesterday I went to work and found out a favorite driver of mine husband had had a heart attack and died straight away at their home. He was also an owner operator of a dump truck as was my husband. A hard life an owner operator always busting butt to make the money to support a truck and a family. He was only 46.


My friend J's daughter is having a baby girl, her shower is Sunday. Imagine my fun buying for a girl, crotchet a pink blanket after so many boys. Before the shower I will attending the wake for my friend's husband.

So many emotions...life is such a paradox.

Awww love your header. Sorry about the death of someone so young. Congratulations to the family with the new baby on the way. As far as Mrs. H. I guess you and everyone in her life are doing the best you can for her and I know it isn't easy.

Sorry about your husbands frined passing.
I used to take care of an elderly woman who really couldn't be alone. Her sons placed her in a nursing home and she fussed and fussed to the point they took her out and brought her home. But, she was happy to be home, just lonely. She used to say she didn't want to live anymore because everyone she knew was now gone. Sometimes just being there for them and listening is all you can do.

big hugs, Rose. I am truly sorry you are dealing with this sudden death and Mrs. H feeling death is better than life. I bet is overwhelming a bit for you. XOXO

I can't ever imagine being tired of life no matter what the reasoning. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's friend. Life to me is too dear and precious, over much too soon. (Hugs)Indigo
