I have decided to share our response to our son as a tribute to ALL adult children who reach out to their older parents. It serves as a reminder that looking beyond your own immediate circumstances to others who are facing this pandemic alone has unexpected rewards. We are all in this together and we all need each other to get us through these terrible isolating times)
I want you to know how much it meant to me and Dad to get such a nice long email letter from you! (The unexpected blessings of a quarantine where you finally have time on your hands)
I am glad you enjoyed the pictures from our countryside drive. It was nice of you to take the time to tell us so! It took a bit of time to put it together, so it’s nice to know you liked it!
We appreciate knowing how you are doing and being able to picture your days…(as in organizing the house and you working on cleaning up the yard and garage!) It allows us to feel like we are a part of your life and we love it. A really nice thing about the written word is that the recipient can go back to it any number of times to reread the words when feeling lonesome or out of sorts! So thank you for this too!
We pray and pray and pray! We pray for our children and their loved ones to stay well and be taken care of in all ways.
I am eternally grateful you found the love of your life who has also become a treasured friend and family member to us as well. She is the perfect example of loving kindness!
Stay well, I pray that God guides you to the right path in all your decisions!
Thank you for checking in on us to see if we are o.k. The love we feel from you means a lot! God bless you for this!
