Mom calls pretty often. Iíve been feeling like when she asks whatís going on with me, she doesnít care, doesnít have patience to listen to much of a reply. Itís part of her general impatience which undoubtedly has to do with her age. It made me sad to realize that. Most of my life, Iíd felt I could talk about my feelings and all sorts of things.

I was wrong; Mom is still my Mom. I was very depressed and I couldnít help but tell her. She really was helpful and comforting, and her age had dimmed none of it.
