There’s a new post on Daughter on Duty.
‘I don’t want anything changed in my room.’ That was the stipulation Mama made when she reluctantly let go of multiple bids to stay at home rather than move to assisted living two months ago. ‘If I come home for a visit,’ she explained, ‘I want to be able to lie down on my bed for a rest.’
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.
