As my mother’s only offspring, I am relieved that she decided to let go of many of her coveted possessions that became a burden to maintain as she aged.
In the past week, I have thought many times of what it would feel like if I were sifting and sorting through her things under different circumstances.
Mom has moved to a cozy apartment that’s perfect for her. She is happy and resting well. The house had become too much! She shocked me by being so willing to make this change. She furnished her apartment and walked away from the rest.
