Overview

Goodnight Sweet Pea: Falling in Love with My Mother by Laurie Woodum

Determined that her mother will die in her own home, a daughter faces floundering as an inexperienced caregiver, job loss, a strained marriage, and restricted freedom. And she discovers the unexpected beauty and humor along a path paved by dementia and lined with the deeper rhythms of life.

This is an honest account in which the author unflinchingly reveals her worst and best moments during the course of caring for a mother she had never been close to. This personal portrait captures the practical and physical challenges, as well as the humor, tenderness, frustration, grief, and unanticipated wisdom that came during the journey. Woven throughout are sketches of her mother before dementia took its toll.

A large part of our population is facing aging parents that require care, and the accompanying moral and practical dilemmas. This offers a look from the inside out - a "Tuesdays with Morrie" 24/7.
