Nearly five years ago, I became my mother’s caregiver overnight. It changed both of our lives in countless ways, but the most lasting effect has been gratitude for the time we share together.
I’ve written posts before about the awesomeness of my Mama and our unique relationship; it’s a special bond. I’ve joked that every day is Mother’s Day in our house, but it’s true. Today really didn’t look that different from most other days.
On this Mother’s Day, I want to recognize the other daughters and granddaughters I know who’ve stepped up to care for their loved ones. The role of a family caregiver is not dissimilar to the role of a mother. It’s not an easy job, and the reversal of roles can make it challenging. Like many in my position, I can’t imagine it any other way. I wouldn’t be the caregiver I am today without the Mama who raised me. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in the world as well as to those filling the role.
Today’s #OneGoodThing was celebrating another Mother’s Day with Mama.
Day 129 of 366.
