Thank You to everyone!

Needless to say Frank and I have not slept a whole lot. We have been talking alot. Despite what happens with his mother (we are getting different messages) we have made the decision to cancel the Florida trip and go to Vermont to visit her. It has been 7 years since our last trip out to see her, we feel this is the right thing to do. Florida will always be there, we can go another time.

Frank and I feel very strongly about going to see her, and for her to see how her grandchildren has really grown up. We still make a nice vacation of it. We will be passing thru Niagra Falls, we can do something there and there are things in Vermont that we can do, not to mention the scenery there, mountains galour! Michigan is such a flat state, I was truly mesmerized by the mountains and scenery in Vermont. The important thing is that on Easter Sunday we will be with Family, Frank will be with those he loves, the kids will get to know their grandmother better and see things that they don't see here.

Mom (in Vermont) we will see you probably on Easter Sunday. We are looking forward to seeing you.

I think the trip change is a good decision. Florida will always be there.

I think your decision was the right one. Sometimes you have to go with what your heart tells you to do. You are an amazing persons and you have a wonderful family.

Vermont is beautiful. Make sure you take time and enjoy those green mountains (although they will probably still be white).

Hugs and blessings.

I agree. I think this may just be what you all need.

Vermont is gorgeous. I have some family that live up there. I highly recommend getting some maple suryup (the good stuff) and visiting the Teddy Bear Factory.

Spending time with your family is the best option.

I also think you're doing the right thing Caroline. As Stacie said, Florida will always be there.

Now I am going to google Vermont.

Not only is your decision important to you, Frank, and the children but the impact on Frank's mother will be very special. When parents age the funny notion that they are no longer important enters their mind. With your decision you will reaffirm how important this woman is (not to mention how much it will mean to Frank).

I think this is a good decision and for all of you, especially Frank and his mom.
