On January 24, 2016, my life changed. At the time mom was 87 and her husband was 88 years old, and they needed help. 93% of my time since that day has been spent here. Relatives that live close have given me breaks, thus the 7%.

The decision to assume the responsibility came easy, the job has been both rewarding and painful for me.

I’m proud of my decision to do the work and proud of my attitude most of the time, but not all of it. The attitude that will pass my level of acceptance is coming.

Mom and I walk together often.
