My Nanny is not doing well, her health is slowly deteriorating. I feel so badly for my parents and her husband, Paul. I also feel bad because I live so far away and can't help my parents during this unfortunate time. For example, at least get their mail or help in anyway.

During this time, I always think about my parents getting old...you always think, "Oh that won't be me." But it becomes everyone. Life comes full circle. You are born without words and are dependent on others to feed you and change your diapers. Well, as you are in the process of dying, the same things start to happen. It is so strange to me.

My parents went to visit my Nanny as hospice recommended they come up. I get nervous because I would want my mom to be here for the birth of my son, but realize that my Nanny dying would need attention first.

I just want peace for everyone in my family. Life can be hard, but it is a blessing to be able to live for that long.
I think it is very important to be non-judgemental. You never know where someone is coming from or the hard journey they've had to endure. I know that I have had to ask for A LOT of forgiveness and I hope to teach my children that it is so important to forgive others as well.

Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
