Growing up, I looked forward to New York winters, because it also meant celebrating the holidays with my family and friends. Every Thanksgiving, mom would cook a large meal with turkey, dressing, and my favorite chocolate cake, and she would always allow me to help her in the kitchen. I spent most of my time test-tasting all of the goodies that she baked. As her assistant, I look forward to helping her cook, decorate, and set the table for the feast that we prepared.
Dressed in our Sunday’s best, it was our annual tradition to host Thanksgiving dinner for our entire family. A bunch of us, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents, would get together to would eat, talk, and laugh; we enjoyed each other’s presence, and we valued the time that we shared as a family. While the adults reminisced about their younger days, we children would enthusiastically listen to their stories, before eventually sneaking off to play. Afterwards, I would help mom clear away the dishes, and she would reward me with an extra piece of cake. Holidays were always a huge affair, and all of the values and traditions that I learned from my mom, I try to instill in my own children.
With age, my mom continues to be the staunchly independent and vibrant woman that she always has been. She still lives in the same home that I grew up in, but she is experiencing the changes that come along with aging. I have noticed that she has trouble walking, she forgets to take her medication, and recently started losing her vision. I know that she wants to remain independent, but I believe that she can use a little help. Since I cannot always be there to help her, I need someone that I can trust to care for her when I am unable too.
