Happily, my Mom was not in any way, shape, or form interested in or engaged in anything on the internet. In fact, attempting to teach her to use a cell phone was futile. We tried. We even had the grandkids attempt to teach her. She had no interest in technology and actually frowned upon the growing scene of the young and old with cell phones glued to their ears, speaking way too loudly, and ignoring others while walking out in front of cars oblivious to the dangers.
Honestly. No one really enjoys talking about death do they?
And no one really enjoys bringing up a very delicate topic that can create that weird silent gap in a conversation between child and parent or visa versa, do they?
But we should all make our own plan and then communicate it. Or, communicate it first then document it.
You know how hard it is sometimes to just "get started"?
And I mean to start anything?
Especially doing things that you have put off doing, want to put off doing, don't want to do, or think "maybe I can do that later"?
Like the task of switching your closet from your summer clothes to fall clothes, or cleaning out the attic or the inside of your oven, or having those honest conversations about tough topics?
