LOVE CARRIES THE CARETAKER, TOO

FOR SEVERAL YEARS, my family cherished and looked out for my mom when she was unable to live by herself anymore. When she first came to stay in our house, she was losing her memory, had a crooked back, and looked much older than her years. She was extremely belligerent and frightened. At first, it was tough to get used to the fact that I'd be caring for her, because I'd been harboring resentment for the way she'd parented during my childhood. But I resolved to meet this challenge through prayer.

My husband and I had always liked to travel, but that came to a screeching halt. On a daily basis, my daughter, Yvonne, came over and helped with my mom's personal care, prepared breakfast, and read the Christian Science Bible Lesson out loud.
