Mum and Nan delivered meals-on-wheels. Nan served in the opportunity shop. I loved to go with them on school holidays. Dad served on the tennis club committee, later on the committee for a nursing home.
The day after Mum’s operation for breast cancer, Dad went to visit but couldn’t find her in her room. She was visiting other patients she thought needed help.
Yesterday my daughter gave birth to a son after some difficulties. Today she is offering encouragement to the woman in the next bed.
The cycle continues.
