My dad came from a big family. The holidays had a steady stream of aunts, uncles and cousins through our house. Mom would decorate, cook and clean to impress her in-laws which was a lot of work. When summer break arrived, family tradition was to rent a quiet little cabin near the San Joaquin River so that Mom could relax with the sounds of nature. She called it “recharging her batteries.”
Mom no longer entertains since Dad passed away. Family members take turns driving her to the many family functions. Last time I saw her, Mom looked exhausted. I noticed her small frame had become smaller and her steps less steady. I think it is time to find her a new place to “recharge her batteries”, somewhere that will take care of her like she has taken care of us for so many years.
Cedar Creek is built on four acres of landscaped gardens, pathways, green lawn and mature trees. Mom can sit in the rose garden and rest her eyes on both redwoods and palm trees. She recharges her batteries in the beauty of nature and with the laughter and conversation of friends and neighbors.
