The car looms large in our aging parent’s lives but at some point it’s too much. The “No Longer Safe To Drive” mind map helps adult children figure out the tipping point of when to intervene as well as provides the data to back it up.
Every Mother’s Day I think about my mom’s dream. She longed for a big house on a lake filled with children and the buzz of life, friends dropping in unannounced, and laughter, lots and lots of laughter. Was not to be. Her life was dealt from a different deck.
Unabashed, she took it as it came with profound courage and loyalty in the face of losses and heartache. Above all, she instilled in me a kind heart the would not turn a blind eye to suffering. It saved my life.
