Emotional Tug of War

My daughter sent me this text last night.

I love her and her mother dearly.

She has determined that Dad needs a break from the covid, a break from the Parkinson’s, a break from the constant care giving and checking and keeping track of stuff.

Sometimes children, good friends or simply others can perceive what we cannot. Solipsistic Dad is unable to detect the forest when the trees are in full view. This is March, so Joyce and I will be able to plan our visit.

As it turns out our nephew is getting married in June. That is so perfect! I have not seen Jeffrey in person for a few years. The wedding was supposed to be last year the covid year and it did not happen. All of California was closed last year for a while. This is developing into a sweet summer.
