Helping My Friends

Thursday, September 30, 2010

I was at the restaurant this past weekend getting some breakfast with my friend.   It was good time to catch up and bring each other up to date on what's been going on in our lives recently. She's one of those friends I can see once a year or once a week and everything is the same. That's a good thing.

We spent a while talking and soon a woman and someone I thought to be her mother sat down next to us. The daughter seemed to be a little older than my friend and I, and her mother was considerable older. I'm not an eavesdropper, but the conversation was intriguing to me, since I know I will have to have the same one with my mom or dad some day.

The daughter was talking to her mom about moving her to an assisted care home.  It was clear the mom would need some living assistance, and I can't imagine how strange a conversation like that must be. My friend and I talked about it later, after we left.  We talked about what kind of things one would need when moving out and on to a place like assisted living.

My husband always says that the best thing about moving is that you have an excuse to start throwing stuff out.  We tend to accumulate a lot of things over the years, and when the time comes for a major move (my friend pointed this out), the task can be overwhelming.

I was inspired by this, so I've already made a date to go to my friend's house and help her do some pre-winter cleaning. She's not moving any time soon, but it never hurts to downsize. My husband and I have already started.

Here's to living lighter and simpler!
