We used to be more hospitable.
We’d always love to have people over
even when we lived in a small trailer.
Now as caregivers, we permanently
have people in our house.
We’ve become so busy
with this unusual family
that at times it feels like we’ve adopted
the “our four and nothing more” mentality.
I’d like to have people visit again,
but the thought exhausts me.
We’ll just have to be hermits for a while.
