Clouding over

Babu hates when she views the world outside of her window and it’s cloudy.  She’ll say:  “No sunshine today?” and not just once.  I’m always more concerned about the clouds that move across her, across her face when she just can’t grasp a memory, or, even worse for her, a word, the clouds that move across her mind when she thinks about details, and people, and love she once knew clearly.


I have written about this before and will again, is she loosing mental capability or am I just watching too closely, looking for monsters under the bed and creating them in doing so?  I ask her all the time to cut herself some slack when things aren’t easy for her, she’s 98!, but I need to let go, too.  Let go of wanting to control, stave off, look closely to catch the earliest sign…

    1. Thank you. She doesn’t at all have the struggles other people have. I try to keep focused on the gratitude!
