Your mom sounds like my mum..
She suffered with Altzheimers for several years but she was the beauty in my heart, the beauty in my eyes but slowly she faded away...Depending on the tableau they have reached, depends on so many things: the way they say, my daughter will be here soon to you and then the tears when they realise that is YOU and the way YOU try to ease their pain...This lady died a little while ago but will always live in my heart for the love she gave to me, her gentleness, the way she cared...she truly was an outstanding lady of the very best kind...
To be truthful, she wasn't my mum but my mother in law, but that was only a title...
If you want to talk with me, or share..I'm here...
Big, very big HUGS
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
