rosary-699609_640Today I discovered, realized, that my mom of 53 years who lives with me does not remember me at all.

Oh, yes, there have been glimpses of this day coming, but to spend hours reminding her who I am just to realize that her last words before going to sleep are, Are you a Catholic? This women who raised me doesn't know me as her daughter who takes her to Mass every week and says the rosary with her.

I don't know if it harder because she knows my sister and older brother or just that I didn't want the day to ever come, the day when she didn't lose the blank look and say, Of course, you're my daughter.

Sad day, but we will continue to go forward to another day, and I will care for her .
