Ruminations from the second half of my century. Looking back, looking forward. Where have I been? Where am I now? Where am I going?

I started this blog before my mother developed dementia and long before my husband was given his terminal cancer diagnosis. This is my journey, but there are so many who have walked or are walking this path. It is easy to think that my pain is special, but everyone I meet now has their own story. It often sounds a bit like mine, but with a twist. The blessing of this suffering is that my heart is breaking wide open. I am learning compassion. My hope is that, through my writing about my own struggles, others may find peace.
