melissa from Texas

Hello my name is Melissa. I currently take care of my mother. I love her to death and enjoy helping her out.

I am the youngest of all my siblings and they help me when they can. My mother Sandy is currently living with me. We enjoy spending time together. My mother is 71 years old. Her birthday is coming up and my siblings and I are planning a birthday party for her. We are so excited! We hope to have her for many more years to come. My mother is still a strong women for her age. She just needs a little help when trying to get up from bed or trying to sit up. Other than that she doesn't need any help at all.
