Call in to speak with the host
My guest today is Penny Wagner, author of .. “Two Elephants in a Bathtub Taking Care of Mom.
Penny’s dad passed away and then she lost her beloved husband. After her mom moved to Florida, she became very ill there. Penny packed her children, Lin, Andrew, and Gary, the pets, and a few belongings and headed south to” take care of Mom.” She began to journal about her days with her mom and those scratched out notes made during nights of unending prayers, preempted her book, “Two Elephants in a Bathtub Taking Care of Mom.” She jokes, “Ask me “why I chose that title, later.” It is with intense pride that she passes this story on to the listeners, today.
The purpose of writing this story, she says, is not to just retell the challenges of those, “decades of weeks,” but to give meaning , and most remarkably a beauty to the time when life is being disappeared. “ You can’t deny heartache,” says Penny, “ but you can find a strength or empowerment an enrichment during that time that may be felt so deeply that it would impossible to override that purposefulness and wholeness, again, It never leaves you. It’s not about loss. It’s about love.”
