thank you

thank you to my brother who has become the primary caretaker of our mother.

thank you to each and every one of you who have stepped into this responsibility.

you might not have known how this was going to take you into a deep, deep dive. after all, this is youvaginar mom and after all the years of she giving to you, you thought it fitting, your sharing of your life so that she may continue her independence.

it seemed the easy answer. you had an apartment in your home and she could be independent and, at the same time, close at hand. or, you could arrange your final years of work from ‘home,’ and ‘home’ was easily arranged to be her home . . . that would work, would be a manageable change for you in the short term.

it has not been as easy and as straightforward as it once seemed it might be.

we, your siblings, mom and choyce know that. we appreciate you. we love you. we want our moms to be loved and cared for. we love that you are able to do this for her.

you are the special ones. we do not know how to help, but we want to. just. ask

❤ ❤
