5 Saints To Call On When Your Parent Needs Parenting


So . . . did I mention that I am starting to write for CatholicMom.com? I'm over at CatholicMom.com today talking about adjusting to life as my mom gets older. Don't get me wrong - my mom is not anywhere near an invalid, but there are some real struggles as aging and life start to take their toll. 

. . . As time has gone on and the effects of age and illness have left their mark, I admit that I struggle to connect with my mom at times. I remember the woman who was fearless and full of life. Now she is a woman who seems withdrawn, easily frightened, and forgetful that there is joy left in life. She is not the woman I remember and want her to be, and in some ways, our relationship has reversed. While she would never admit it, my mother needs the nurturing of a mother, not a daughter . . .

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Rest assured I do read each and every word, but please forgive me if I don't get back to you right away. The toddler tugging on my leg and the one year old pulling my hair may have seized control of my typing abilities. Blessings on your day!
