My Mom and Me....

During your childhood years, you looked to your parents for all your needs. Your parents may be fit and healthy now, but at some point, they may struggle with ill health and look to you to be their primary caregiver.

Our parent's last years were the hardest we've ever gone through, but we are so thankful we were able to be there when they needed us. The things we learned from caring from them were that you can do things of which you never thought you were capable, and you have the power to put a stop to things being done to your parents of which you disapprove. You just have to be willing to rock the boat as much as necessary to accomplish your purpose, even if that goes against the grain with you. After all, our parents did whatever was necessary for our best interest. Do we owe them any less? by Pat Burroughs

Take Care of Yourself
You must need lot of patience to care your aging parents. It helps to strengthening family bonds. Taking care, is responsible, stressful and emotional duty. Emotions like anger, guilt, grief and anxiety are normal. But you need to tackle all these in pleasant way. Don't forget to take care of yourself on the move. When you need any kind of help ask your relatives, friends or people in the community. Or hire help. Take care of yourself, and your lovable parents. Enjoy your life with them.
