Where will all of These People Sleep?

October 28, 2013

Every summer our extended family gets together at Dad’s house for a week.  Mom and Dad started this when I was a baby.  It is a special time for all of us.  It has always been Dad’s favorite week of the year.

For the last several years, Dad has had a lot of questions.  Where will everyone sleep? When is Joe arriving?  Who will pick Sara up at the airport? Who is that man?  Did I invite him?  Does everyone have a chair?

He no longer recognizes people. There are continual questions about who people are and how they are related. Cousins may sound familiar but their spouses are lost.  The third generation is totally overwhelming.

Helping him to enjoy his week now requires my constant attention but more importantly, is he enjoying it at all anymore?
