Why Can’t I go?

Why Can’t I go?                     by Lori La Bey

Sometimes not teling the whole truth is better…

As a family we got to a point with my Mother were we could not tell her we were going on vacation or a business trip, as she would get upset.  She did not understand why she could not come with.  Mom did not seem to realize she was not capable of traveling.  Going on a cruise, flying, or driving was something she enjoyed and in her mind, she was still able to do.  There was no arguing the point, so we just stopped mentioning these trigger points.

We decided as a family, my Mother’s joy and happiness was more important then us sharing things that might bring her pain and make her upset.  Each family has to decide on their own when it comes to situaitons like these.
