I also cared for my father in my home before he passed away, so I understand the heartache and struggle involved. I am glad you are finding peace in obeying God's nudge. This is encouraging to me as I am also hearing God calling me to a more simple life.

Very timely message, very well-written.
(A tiny suggestion for the following sentence ..."Like any addiction, I could only thrive in this environment for so long." I believe you are trying to say, "Like any addict, I could only thrive...")
Yours is a very interesting life story. In some ways it could be a "teaching example" for others in similar situations.

God wants to be in control of our lives at all stages of our life. The gifts and or abilities he gives us may change or situations may change to enable us to use the gift he wants us to put to his use.

The question to put to ourselves is, "Am I doing or being what God want me to be doing or being at the present time in my life?"

Nice work. Good conclusion.
God continued to show me little-by-little that sometimes just enough of the world is all I need.

I liked that sentence and it is a good lesson to remember. Thanks for sharing.
