Once a woman...

IMG_20120930_121359.jpg Well, ok!  Here I am, back to where I was 9 or 10 years ago. .. Putting those annoying covers on door handles,  straps through gate latches, covering the handles on the stove.  It is a humbling feeling to know that I have to "lock" my mother in her own home to keep her safe from herself.

I'm paraphrasing a quote a friend shared with me when he found out I was being the caretaker to my mom, "Once a woman, twice a child".
