This is beautiful.

I cared for my Dad for the last year of his life. I watched his hands shake and remembered when they scooped me up so easily and pinned butterfly barrettes in my hair. That year broke my heart a million times, sometimes in one day. I still have my Mom and I am so grateful. I record every call from her so I will always have her voice.

Just wanted to say thanks for writing this.
