My niece, K, who will turn 20 this coming tax day lost her father to cancer a couple of weeks after husband died. My ex-brother in law was a proud stubborn man who dictated the terms of his life & his death. K spent the last year of ex-brother in law's life caring for him in no way that a young woman of that age should. My sister did her best to guide K & counsel her; K felt that she knew best for her dad & did her best to care for him. Since her dad died K has been lost ~ she's used to being a caretaker & cannot seem to get back on track. K along my other niece, her sister T have been planning on moving to my neck of the woods this coming summer. My sister called me the other night in tears because K is just so lost. She asked if K could come & stay with me & kt ~ just to give her a new start. I told her that K would be welcome with open arms & would be a good role model for kt. The fact that they both lost their father & can talk about that to each other will be good. K will be coming to town next weekend to discuss the rules & what would be expected of her. She called to ask me if she could take kt out to lunch that Sunday before she heads back home. So K will be moving in mid April. She's willing to pitch in & help me keep this house cleaned. To run any errands I cannot on any given day. I hope/pray this will be good for both K & kt. These 2 young women need some joy, some normalcy in their young lives.
