I’m coping by helping my 91 year old mom edit and publish her stories on a new Facebook page.
We did a Facebook Live on her birthday Saturday and she read the introduction, the idea was to then just post a chapter every week. But it was so charming having her read it, that now we are upping the game with a teleprompter app and bullet point outlines, and soon she’ll be “telling” the stories on video besides publishing the transcript!
I’m on a forced unpaid leave from my airline, and Mom is suddenly alone after my Dad passed in early February, so it’s been a blessing to be here in Arizona with her so she’s not suddenly alone after 66 years of marriage!
