Last April I had the pleasure of welcoming my parents back to their home after months in skilled nursing and assisted living. Many people thought they would never return home again. Harriet, my step mother knew she would. It was her absolute certainty and determination that bought them more time in their home.

Some things needed to change to make it possible. That meant a lot of challenging but necessary conversations about who could be counted on to do what. Old family patterns and games had to give way to straightforward dialog. But they made it home and they're still home, and contrary to many projections, my step mother is driving again.

She talked it and she walked it. It wasn't just positive thinking and bold declarations. It was positive thinking, bold declarations and concerted effort. 

I salute her.
