JewBu Quest: From Abuse to Happiness

JewBu: a Jew who practices forms of Buddhist meditation & spirituality. This blog documents my quest to 1) heal from sexual, verbal, and emotional abuse, 2) come to terms with losing Mom and Grandma to Alzheimers, 3) find balance, explore the spiritual, stay present. Bascially, I've experienced some pretty crappy shit in my life and want to find a way to move past it and find happiness.

Thank You

Mom's nurse just called me so I could talk to Mom a bit. She sounded really good today, remembering all sorts of things. Then, all of a sudden she said, "I want to thank you for everything you've done for me. I can't wait to see you when you get back."

I just broke into tears a bit. She's so sweet. And, it felt really good to be acknowledged.

She's putting my mom to bed too early though, and it is really hard to talk to her about stuff because she just wants to get off the phone, and I know that I'm not there, so I don't want to be criticising.

Thanks Peg. I appreciate that you're still reading the blog. My grandmother can't say anything at all, just moans; once I understood that she was trying to tell me that she didn't recognize me. It is very hard. That's why it was so touching that Mom said what she did.
