I have the most amazing parents that myself and my girls look up to, actually all our friends.
Last night I got a call from Mum saying they were driving down to visit my older sister in Albany in the morning, 5 hours away for 4 days and not to worry if I couldn’t get in touch or if I came over and they didn’t answer the door. They are 83 and 86 and both renew their drivers license every year with strict guidelines.
I am blessed they still get out even for coffee every day from their retirement village to DOME, play marjong 3 times a week and contribute to fund-raising charities monthly by making things.
My parents/my childrens grandparents are family icons and my goal is to be the same. Everyone stay alive mentally and keep in touch with family daily, even if you think they don’t care.
