What about family, a friend, or an acquaintance? Do we remember something else and forget to make time? Or forget the something else and remember to make time.
Care or not to care. Does choice define the quality of our natures?
One thing for sure … caregiving is EASIER said then done.
With Patti’s Multiple Sclerosis progression she actually has memory loss so I said to myself, “Self, why not pose this quandary to Patti?”
Patrick: “Patti, is it easier to forget or easier to remember?”
Patti: “Who the hell cares? I just want a cigarette!”
The give and take of caregiving can have a way of simplifying the philosophical. <grin>
