Reflection Weekend 


We lost Dad to Alzheimer’s just a few short weeks ago.  He had been in the hospital since July 25, and was never able to return home. After those trying weeks of emotional stress, I decided to have a girls weekend planned with  Mom, sister, niece and great-niece. Everyone had a fantastic time.

I chose a cabin in the woods of Murphy North Carolina. On a creek secluded in the woods. It was wonderful.


It was a wonderful time to reflect on many things in life. We shared stories, asked many questions that had beeen left unanswered, listened to Mom speak of their early life together before we came along and there were tears. Though it was a challenge, all of us in the same cabin, different thoughts on everything, we dealt with it, had a lot of fun and enjoyed our ” girl time ” .
