Worried About Gifts This Season?
502 days ago

Ellen,
I don't really want to buy gifts for mom, I just want to try and bring her to your show for her 81st birthday this coming year on Friday March 29th, 2013. I don't know if I will be able to afford it or not then but I will try my damndest to do this. This would be something neither of us have ever done....travelled to watch a live television show. I want to try and do as many things as possible for her that she has never done before......really fill her life with memories of fun things she did in her time. She is my best friend.

Ellen,
I need your help pls. 1.5 yrs ago my dad passed away from Dementia. It was pretty hard on my mom, but we were all there for her. I had lived in another province in Canada for many years. After I came back we noticed dad started the decline in his health. The last year was very rapid. I have been back home in Ontario since 2007 now and mom and I have become best friends. I have always been in upper management for my career, and at age 53 finally had enough stress in my life that I quit my job, wanted to change my career path, so I took my TESL Certification to teach English as a second language abroad. I did not want a heart attack at age 53 and I wanted to start working less hours and look for my retirement property at the same time. I accepted a teaching position in Ecuador, South America that is to start this coming September. I have researched the areas Cuenca and Loja, Ecuador for the last 2-3 months and no matter how much I try and explain to her that everything will be OK, she still does not believe me. I want her to spend the winters down there with me and then she can come home for the spring, summer and fall. How can I convince my 80 year old mom that I will be OK and that things in Ecuador are just as I have told her. It is so affordable and safe to live there......I love her so much
