I am sitting here with my Mom this morning trying to express what is in my thoughts. I have had a hard week. My Mom is on a leave from her job so I can be cared for. When someone walks away from our lives it leaves an enormous challenge for my family. If you need direct care and are reading this, I imagine you have experienced this too. We are trying to find people with a higher standard for themselves. People who are compassionate and caring. I want to say that I know my Mom has sacrificed so many things in order for me to have a quality life at home. It has cost her a lot. I am so glad that I still live at home. I know there is no perfect place to live but being with family is so much better than some grouphomes I have visited. I hope to be in a small home someday with a great friend. I know that day may come when I will be leaving home, but I am so grateful in the meantime to be here. We have little support right now, so it is hard, but I am praying for GREAT women. If you have great care, you are very blessed.
