Care PARTNERS – night capper

There were as many times, right to the end, that Mom was as much a care giver to me as I was to her; we were truly care PARTNERS.

It is not easy, requires patience, communication & good humor as much as it does love. There were times that our friendship got us through, keeping us strong where our love for the other made us vulnerable.

And it was all worth it.

The grief, the aggravation, the hurt & sense of being alone – feelings we both felt at times – were as if nothing in light of all we gained through that partnership.

Thank you, AARP, for capturing it in thirty seconds.
