This is always a hard time of year. I miss my dad and I can't bring my mom home anymore--so I can't keep any of the old traditions anymore. I try to make new ones but it just is not quite the same.
If you are paying this person to help, you need to find someone else. You do NOT need to put up with that.
I lost my mom 8 years ago last week, and I know how you feel. I am praying for you. Maybe you could buy a few bottles of nicely scented hand lotions and when you go to visit your mom, bring some to some of the other people there (and your mom, of course). It won't change the world, but you will make the world a nicer place for a few people, if only for the moment.
And you can always PM me whenever you want. I have a good strong shoulder and a good "listening ear" (so to speak).
