I'm helping to take care of my mom.
That act of care-taking is the biggest part of what is helping me. This woman that I love, that nurtured me and took care of me...is in need.
There are moments (not very many), but for the most part, I'm glad that I can be there.
Some if it is going through the motions...some of it must be hard for her, so I'm "matter of fact" about it.
