Today marks the one year mark of my blog and the anniversary of Beethoven’s 246th birthday. (See my first blog, Music Therapy.) I have just finished watching, “Immortal Beloved.” Again. This year, I shared some of it with my son. You’re never too young or old to learn about Ludwig.
A whole year has gone by since I started writing about natural caregiving, and so very much has changed for me. I wouldn’t know where to begin, so I won’t. I don’t want to look back – I am facing forward. What I do understand though is that many of us put our focus on things that don’t really matter, things that seem to give us pleasure, but in the long run, are inconsequential. I’m glad I spent time with Mom, even if it did mean forsaking a lot of things I might otherwise have done. I received far more than I gave up.
As she would always say, “People are more important than things.” Amen.
