I get it...

We're not five minutes in the car and Mom begins to fill the silence with irrelevant chatter. I get it, that I know that I want everything to be on MY terms, and that Mom wants everything to be on HER terms. I also get it, that at her age and with her deteriorating health, it is highly unlikely that she is/will/would be able to change. So it falls to me to learn how to compromise and accept things on her terms. I get that.

And I'm really looking forward to working with someone, a professional, to learn how to do that. It's not going to be easy and I'm likely to be very frustrated on a regular basis, but I've got to try, not necessarily for her, but for me.
