My aunt called me one day, and she sounded very confused. She had just been looking at apartments in Tallahassee and she said that she rent one. She wanted to downsize a bit after selling her very large home. I was happy for her, but I was worried about the way that she sounded. I asked her if everything was okay, and she began crying. She told me that she had been having trouble living on her own for a while, and she said that her doctor had told her that she was having some age-related memory problems. This really worried me.
At some point during the phone conversation with my aunt, I asked her if she would be interested in moving to my state so she could be closer to where I am. She told me that she loved the city that she was living in, and it was home to her. However the apartment she rented has two bedrooms and she said that I would always be welcome to live with her, and she even said she would really love it if I gave it some serious consideration. I told her that I would get back to her about it.
My aunt’s and I have always been close. We grew even closer after my mother passed away. My aunt felt that you need to look out for me, and I always appreciated that. Good now that she’s a senior, I miss having trouble living alone, I decided that it would be a good idea to move in with her. I look forward to each day with her. It is goo to be with her full time, and there is a lot of room for both of us in the place she has rented. I’ve really missed being around her like this.
