Older parents

Older parents

Guest post from: Mohamed Simon

My parents seem to suddenly be much older than they used to be. I can tell that they are starting to slow down and not get out as much as they used to when they were younger. My dad is a lawyer, and my mom is a nurse, although mom has not worked as a nurse since I was born. They are both in their early eighties and live in a medium sized house in Jacksonville, Florida. It is not the house my sisters and I grew up in, but my parents have lived there so long that it even feels like home to me now when I visit. Mom and dad used to be very involved with their church especially when we all lived with them. It seemed like every time the church doors were open our family was there. And I would say we were the most behaved kids there because our mom would threaten us with our lives if we misbehaved in any way. Today it is different for mom and dad. They now watch church programs on DirectStarTV.com. I know it is not the same as being in the church building, but somehow it works for them. It is amazing to me that television can fill that void in their lives.

    I wish I could see my mother at that age. But she is no longer here. I know that she would love the idea of having her own blog. By the way, I too am from Jacksonville, Florida.
