Margie- I am so glad you shared this. You didn’t always have it the easiest growing up with your Mom- but I am glad you are able to put it behind you and enjoy the woman she is now- you have become an amazing person because of the trials and tributes you’ve had in your life. It is hard to see a parent age- regardless if they have dementia or just natural aging- prayers with you as you struggle with patience occasionally.
