Mom's been asking for the past 3 yrs to go home....the home she lived in with her mamma and poppa. I tell her I know how bad she wants to go home but she can't today. Little white lies to keep her at peace.

Very common. My grandmother wanted to go home--to the home she lived in at 10 with her parents and sister living with her. Redirect with love. Change subject. Therapeutic fibs. Take care of you too.
