Old and weary

My mom just turned 70 last week. I noticed that she moves slower now unlike when she was in her 60s. Aside from her age, she’s also tired of attending to her grandchildren who are left in her care by my sister who is working abroad. My mom also manages the household without a helper. It’s not surprising that she complained of joint aches and pains most of the time. She’s taking a medicine for hypertension and should not be doing all the chores by herself. I could have assisted her but I also have a family to take care of. I can’t do anything to help her but ease her tiredness at the end of the day by giving her something to lean on while watching her favorite program on TV. She needs a soft cushion to ease her back pains. I intend to check or buy cushions here for her one of these days.
