Time for Mom

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Today I will be spending the afternoon with my Mom. I'll take her to the credit union, the grocery store and the beauty salon. She's getting older, she's losing confidence in herself, and she hates that it takes longer for her to do simple things and the fact that sometimes she forgets. I remind her that I forget sometimes, too. But she's scared.

So, it's time to invest some time into Mom. She invested the time in me when she brought me up. She instilled in me some great values and beliefs. The least I can do is be there more. I want to take her worries away - at least the ones that I can.

I spent a day having fun with her last week. It made her day. It's nice to be able to do that.

    Wonderful! Spend time with her while you can; you will never regret doing so. This time that the two of you spend together is a precious gift; I urge you to take advantage of it the way you are.

    Wonderful!! Enjoy and help while you is so sad to hear of people with relatives who have dementia and no longer no them. But like my friend said, whereas we used to multitask and do 4-5 things, now even doing 2 is enough...
