While eating lunch out this afternoon, I felt myself being drawn in by these two women sitting a few tables away from me. I could tell that the lady on the right was visibly saddened by the frailness of her ailing mother as she sat patiently waiting for her mom to finish her lunch. I've seen the same look in the eyes of my own mom as she looks after my grandmother. While this role-reversal from care-receiver to caregiver is something that most every child, fortunate enough to grow old along with their parents, must face, it certainly doesn't make it any easier.
