Thankful, Part 3


I am thankful for my mother.  What most people don’t realize is that I can barely take care of myself or the house at this point.  I can load the top rack of the dishwasher, but not the bottom.  I have trouble getting laundry out of the washer.  Then I have trouble getting laundry out of the dryer. I can push a broom, but not a vacuum cleaner.  I have trouble reaching down to clean to the tub.  She also helps me with the cooking.

I have trouble with personal care.  My mom is nice enough to cut my toenails on my right foot for me, since I can’t.  When I can’t get my pants, socks, or shoes on, my mom helps me with that too.

When I have a bad day mentally, my mom is willing to listen.  She reminds me that no matter what, we always make it through.

So on day 3, I am thankful for my mom.  She helps me more than I can ever repay.
