1. Beautiful post! That’s one of the things I least enjoy about social media, especially facebook…where all parents are perfect and their children are awesome and every night is date night.

    Right now I live in gratitude that I still have both my parents and even though dad is an assisted living facility and having medical and mental issues…he’s still with me. I can still hug him and love him and see that crooked little smile that is my dad 😀

    • Thank you! There is just so much pressure out there–and you’re right, social media is a huge culprit of guilt. In the end, we need to appreciate more what we have and go from there. Best wishes to you and your dad. That has to be so tough, but you have an excellent sense of perspective there!
