This piece flowed nicely and endeared me to your mother. It is so difficult getting old and caring for someone who is getting old. Well done!
Very good writing here. I loved so mnay sentences and the way you phrased certain things. Very good!
Good job. You captured the emotions that many of of face with aging parents. I really like the way you ended it with the sentence, "that's what families do."

This is such a lovely, tender article. The last sentence just sums up everything. Reaching 81 is quite an achievement and we can understand your mother's frustration with losing her independence.
