|Left to right: mom, my sister and me!|
Readers who have been with me for a long time may remember a long series of posts I did on my mom. They are found under the label of Through My Caregiver Eyes (just click on that title under Labels on the right side of my blog to bring them up sequentially) I started that series in August 2010 and my final post for it was in January 2015 - she died in December 2014. This series documents our time together and my growth into the caregiver role. If you or anyone you know are heading into care giving for an elderly person, reading about another's experiences can be helpful. Care giving can be a very isolating and sad struggle. It helps to know your story is not so much different than many others.
If you are lucky enough to still have your mom, love, care and appreciate her - not just on this day - but on all days. Some day in the future, she may not be around.
Happy Mother's Day
to my readers who are themselves mothers!
It is the most rewarding experience of your life!
