Re: Uneasy Feeling - Carol
My parents both had heart conditions as they aged, but lived to their 90s. My mom's sisters lived to their 90s also. The all experienced the pain of outliving their friends. My parents were very careful eaters and stayed within the limits of what they could eat. Mom knew how to used herbs and spices and we never felt we were missing anything in taste when we ate at their house. I inherited my dad's sweet tooth. He even taught me how to sneak sweets so that mom wouldn't know.
I miss our old friends, especially around holidays. A couple of families here are nice enough to include us in their celebrations. Life here is more relaxed but who doesn't miss BBQ in the winter?
