Whenever I'm sad or sick I still want my mom. Over the years I've often wondered if this need for mom will dissipate as I grow older. Yet it hasn't, and I'm convinced that on some level we all go on wanting our mothers in times of need for our entire lives.
Road trips with elderly parents must provide a high comfort quotient, starting with a well-appointed sedan and, if possible, luxury hotels. No matter how tired my mother was, when we checked into a gorgeous place, she beamed from ear to ear.
