I bust my butt for my 95.5 yr. old Mother who lives with me, and work part-time as well. I do the very best I can to take care of her. She is able to get around with her walker and gets dressed herself. But, she is constantly pointing out negative things and brings them to my attention! Like, I just mowed and cleaned up the yard and she'll point out one leaf that is still out there! Things like that. It drives me nuts! I take pride in my flowers too and I have a beautiful arrangement of geraniums, alyssum, starburst lilies and light green potato vines. It's beautiful! She goes up to it and points out a few leaves that have some little bug holes in them- I'm mean minute ones! What the heck? Why can't she see the beauty in anything- it's always something I've left out or not done right. Yikes! My daughter says I am negative....woah- wonder where I get it from? Any suggestions? I have said to her, "Now, Mom, can you please point out how beautiful the whole arrangement is without nit-picking about one little thing?" She doesn't get it. I just want to scream!
