Whew! What a ride!

This Christmas season was a roller coaster ride of huge proportions. The calendars flew off the shelves faster than I could produce them. So I’ll need a new plan for next year! The two schools where I teach had more work than I thought, so although I was super busy, I was able to participate in the kids’ plays and concerts. Adorable! I got to shop with and for my own kids and grandkids and loved spending time with them.

Unfortunately, my mother had to finally go to a nursing home. My sister Pat did an incredible job of taking care of her way above the call of duty. She and my brother-in-law were able to keep her home for quite a while. A big thank you goes out to  our long time family friend Jan Dunsky (who works at Adult Foster Care) for her help and support throughout this difficult decision. But on the upside, Mom was with the whole family at Pat and Bob’s house yesterday and enjoyed having her favorite dog Tia next to her in the big recliner.

Although it’s been pretty stressful for the whole family this season, yesterday was just perfect. I’m so thankful for my family and friends who make life an amazing roller coaster ride!    —Sharon

  1. Happy New Year, Sharon!
    Your calendars were a big hit with my family…they don’t get to Gloucester as much as I do, so the scenes brought back some great memories for them!
    Sorry about your mom; my mom is still going strong after almost 83 years. I’ll probably need to go into a ‘home’ before her, trying to keep all these grandkids…19 at last count!…all going in the right direction.
    Keep up the good work. Hope to see you when we come up in June.
