I've had some stress lately, not much online. Our quiet anniversary on Sunday ended with a shock, when Angie's mother's health took a dramatic turn to worse. She's feeling better already, but we have to take turns to be with her. She is a wonderful lady with great personality, 85 years September this year, three strokes already. I just hope and pray together with Angie that we could still have her with us for a long time.

You friends here, you should hear the stories she can tell. Born in an entrepreneur family who lost everything but a small shop for Nazis, she continued to keep the shop alone when new regime took over and she found herself alone in new, communistic DDR (East Germany) when rest of the family ended in West. Fighting 40 years to keep the shop, being one of not too many private entrepreneurs in the whole Leipzig region, being constantly interviewed and searched by Stasi, the secret police, who thought she was an imperialist spy, trying to revoke her license for shop but not being able to do that ( her business was arts and culture related, and she had some powerful supporters among the culture scene of DDR, which had its center in Leipzig).

To be honest, the egoistic part of me is feeling sorry because all summer plans have to be forgotten, to be able to be here with her. For instance, Angie and I were invited to participate this event in Washington, D.C. next week, or rather I was invited by the buyer of my company and asked to take the wife with me. All expenses paid, nice hotel, pleasant company, a possibility to meet some friends I'm not able to meet too often etc. Now the trip is cancelled, I called and cancelled it Tuesday with a heavy heart, as we say in Finnish. Same thing with trip to meet the family in Finland, have no clue when or if we can organize it.

Guilty conscience hits always after these kind of egoistic worries. Main thing is, of course, to be here and support Angie as much as I can. Her mother is the last family she has, so I can understand how hard this is to her.

Everything looks already better, we had luck this time and don't have to be so scread anymore. I'm expecting I can soon have a nice afternoon in Ice-cream parlor with Mutti, sneaking there so that Angie does not notice it (she says Mutti and I should not eat so much sweets and Ice-cream and is constantly watching us like a hawk , doesn't like when I smuggle cookies to hospital).

Life is good and it goes on. Some things we can change, some things not. That's it.

Kari, sorry about your mother-in-law's health, and the loss of your trip. But I think you are a great husband and son-in-law, doing what you are doing.

I know exactly what you are saying and feeling. I am going through the same with my wife as we can't go anywhere. Frankly I don't care to go anywhere as long as she is happy then I am happy. Can't ask for more than that.
You have to play the cards that God gave you and the cards or rewards for what you are doing for Angie and her mom are priceless.
I am very proud of you for putting them in front of you.
Now enjoy the ice cream and get a good nights rest.
Dennis, I would say the same to you, you are a great husband to your wife.

That my friend, is a completely normal human response.

Deep down, each and every single one of us think of ourselves first, and others later, regardless of the situation. It's a hardwired instinct.

The only real difference between us all is the speed we put aside our personal feelings, and the intensity of emotion which dictates how we behave thereafter.

Condolences for your trip mate and kudos for choosing to support your wife and her mother.

Lesser people would have gone ahead with the trip, guilt laden or not.

That was a perspicacious observation Patrick.....
You are a rare & well adjusted individual.

I simply can not leave Angie here alone to take care of Mutti.

Sorry to hear that Kari, I just hope everything goes fine for her.
BTW, her struggle for her entrepreneurship was a really nice read. Thanks for sharing.
