Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Extra 2021 January 14th


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It has been a while that I posted in here. It's a very strange time for me. First there is the Covid pandemic. As you all know I am a nurse, so this time is very busy for us workers in healthcare. Than I have to tell you a sad experience I recently have had.

As you (maybe) know my mom lives in a nursing home for the eldery people, because she suffers from dementia. Back in December 2019 I had to make that choice. Fortunately my mom could come to the nursing home were I work myself as a head nurse.

 My mom (1930-2021)

Unfortunately my mom got Covid and on January 5th she died. Today (January 14th) we had her funeral. It's sad, but I cherish and carress all the beautiful memories my mom and I have made. My mom was 90 yrs and now she is reunited with my dad, who died back in 2016.
