📷⛓ Photochain Challenge 64 - Blanket & Pillow

First of all I need to explain why I have barely been present on Hive. My life has been a frenzy since my almost 80-year-old mom took a fall on April 5th, when she dislocated and fractured her right shoulder in multiple places a mere three days before she was scheduled to undergo aortic valve replacement surgery.

Naturally, there is much more to the story because nothing ever goes as planned in my life. I will write about the adventures as soon as I have time. Meanwhile, Mom is staying with me until further notice so I can provide around the clock care for her while she mends.

For my entry this week I am showing respect and honoring senior members of my family. My children are truly blessed to have grandparents present and involved in their lives.

Please click below to listen to one of my favorite country songs I chose to accompany my post titled "Grandpa Tell Me Bout The Good Old Days" by The Judds

Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Sometimes it feels like this world's gone crazy
And Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress, but I just don't know
And Grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Sorry you are having to deal with so much. I know just normal life is hard enough without the added responsibilities. FWIW I think you are doing a tremendously good thing :) but be sure to take care of you as well.

Sorry, you're out of LUV tokens to be sent today. Try tomorrow. (Having at least 5 LUV in your wallet allows you to freely give 3 per day.)

Wishing your mom a quick recovery. Being a senior myself, the possibility of taking a tumble is something that I'm always aware of, and as we get older the chances of taking a nasty fall increases.
As we get older, the last thing we want to do is burden our family with taking care of us, especially if we have lived a very independent life.
But, when that day does come, it's a very comforting feeling knowing that our children will answer the bell, and will do so with love for us in their hearts.
