I thought I had more time...
"It’s hard to know what to do before it’s time. We always think we have so much more “time.”
When my Mom suffered from a stroke years ago, I wasn’t prepared for what would follow. I thought we had more time. Fast forward (time frame), my Mom’s health suddenly began to decline from a different diagnosis. In just two months, I found myself scrambling again and unprepared like years ago when she suffered the stroke. As nights grew long and questions to simple things became hard, I wished we spoke about her financial affairs so I could have been better informed.
I wish I had taken the time to have her journal her financial affairs. I wish I didn't have to go on a scavenger hunt looking for her documents. If only I had stopped to get questions answered, it would have helped prepare me for my new journey. My new adjustment in life. My new reality of time."
