Eventually, we become the caregivers for our parents. This is well written. :)
This was sweet!
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.
