Iris from Texas

I left my job to take care of mom in my home full time. She gave us life , helped raised our children and now I am only doing for her what she would do for any family member that needed help. It's challenging at times but it's a challenged that goes without thinking. I just do what I have to for my 89 year old mom to give her comfort and the best quality life that she has left. I do it out of love and God helps us get by every day. Love you mom!
