Quietly, crawled into bed with her.

Mom had a bad night last night, she seemed somewhat delirious but not out of the ordinary that she would have these outbursts. Only this time I was having a harder time of calming her down. I began to get upset and decided to get in bed with her. I stroked her hair, talked to her and held her hand. Then I began to sing songs she had taught me as a little girl like: Summertime. Ten Pretty Girls. Que Sera Sera. And from that moment on she was ok. She quietly went to sleep and so did I.
