My Saturday was filled with family activities only.
|Tramway supporters with Peter and Brett.
|Tramway F.C. Winners with their coach
|Geraldine with her knee throw crocheted by yours truly.
Eddie had brought his mom lovely treats which Geraldine was obviously more interested in. You can clearly see the love between Mom and son. Eddie straightened Geraldine's sweater, ruffled her hair while he spoke and showed her pictures of her grandson's Matric Ball. During our conversation in the sun, I learn that Eddie visits his mom at least once a week, he had set up a a TV in her room and he has commissioned a local hairdresser to style Geraldine's hair once a week.
I gained renewed respect for this young man who has a clear idea of how to love and care for his mom. Eddie knows they had to make a difficult choice to place a Geraldine in this frail care facility, but he and his brother, Newton, are still there all the time for their mom. Many folk are so easily forgotten by their loved ones, a sad reality.
All too soon the time passed. We said our goodbyes, promising to visit soon again.
And the finale to my day? A looooooong siesta ... Well earned for a hectic week that was...
|Me and my handsome firstborn, Brett.
