Mom

My Mom is 83 years old. Our family (and she) never thought she'd live to be this age. She is a survivor, really hangin' in there. I have put her through so much, and she still forgives me. It helps that now I can do something for her. She is on dialysis (born with only one kidney, and it finally caught up with her) and she needs me to drive her three times a week for treatments. This is a win-win situation. I am helping her, and helping myself feel needed and justified for staying at home. I am now working for my room and board. My mom can't drive, and if I weren't there, she would have limited options for getting around because my brother travels for a living and is often gone. Things happen for a reason...
