Waiting For God

Waiting for God is a early 1990’s British sitcom about two spirited residents of a retirement home who are brought together by circumstances where they fight the oppressive management of their home.

My parents are now waiting for God in a way as they are moving into a independent living facility where they will have a good deal of their needs cared for. They will have a nice apartment with full bath and kitchenette. Also they have two outdoor balconies one off their bedroom and the other off the living room.

It’s taken me some time to get used to the fact that this could be the last place they live. A part of this retirement home is that their needs will change and there will be appropriate care as things go on.

I still see my folks as being really young but the reality is they are getting older and they cannot do the things they used to. Every person will have to face this sort of reality some day. For me I am still having some trouble realizing this with my folks. One day I hope way down the road this will be something I will have to face for myself.

Getting older isn’t for the feint of heart. It takes courage when you are waiting for God.
