Good with the Bad

Got a really good call from our son from jail on Christmas afternoon, that's the good.

My mom's dementia is getting worse, it is becoming more and more pronounced. It was very evident with everyone here for Christmas, the bad.

My father-in-law's significant other died on Sunday the 26th. She suffered from Alzheimer's too, the bad.

I'm very sorry to hear about the "bad" and I'm glad you and mom got a good call from your son on Christmas day...I know that had to mean a lot!!

Amazing - if that is the word - I had a similar experience - good with Heather, bad with our Pastor and bad with my sister-in-law. It was emotionally confusing as on one hand I wanted to shout from the roof tops my good news, and on the other I cried.
I'm really sorry about your father-in-law's significant other and sympathize on being faced with your mom's dementia.
... at the same time, I know that phone call from A brought big smiles to you and mom.
God bless.

Its very difficult to see our parents age and especially if they suffer from something like dementia, etc.

Good to hear about the call from Alex :)
