There is nothing like gardening to bring peace. It combines all the best things - physical activity but not too much, mental activity that's just enough to keep you from dwelling on things but not demanding, you're outside (a biggie), and you're working with living things that don't move, which is therapeutic and calming.
Seeing your mother declining and your bil with Alzheimers will have put you in mind of your own mortality. Naturally, you are taking stock. Just be careful not to dwell on the past, which can't be undone, and instead devote yourself to fully experiencing the day you're living in, and every next day you have. Make plans to do things you've always wanted to do. And garden! If you could garden every day, you would ooze happiness out into the world and make it a better place! what could be more rewarding than that?
