Shani, this is a beautiful piece of writing and it went straight to my heart. My parents are both in failing health and are in their seventies. In their eyes I am a 12 year old, so they will not discuss anything that has to do with their future. I will make sure that when we talk I will thank them, appreciate them and let them know that I will be there as they go further. I will let the talk of people I don’t even know without rolling my eyes. Thank you, I feel that I will have less guilt and less regrets in the next few years.
Michelle (who is 48 not 12) :)
