Emotional support

On Wednesday, the last day that I worked with Audrey before I left to take my son to The Citadel on Thursday, we had a deep discussion about God and change and love and acceptance. I am realizing, as a caregiver, that I am getting as much as I give.

Audrey told me that she has been through these types of changes and that they are not easy. She also told me that she would pray for me and knew that God would see me through because I have accepted Him in my life.

She went on to tell me that I am her friend and she cherishes the time that we spend together and that she loved me. I needed that and tears formed in my eyes as the innocent 90 year-old friend expressed her honest opinion which I appreciate down to my very core.DSC_0016

It is at moments like these that I am so grateful that I was able to start my elderly care business. It gives me the opportunity to love and serve others and feel the love back a thousand times over. If Heaven is supposed to look a certain way, I think I have found my Heaven on Earth!

I plan to continue my motto of With Age Comes Respect – especially now that my life is a bit emptier with my older son, Reese, away. Drew, my younger son wants to be groomed for this type of position and as I share my stories, I know that he will be able to appreciate them as much as I do.

I am glad to be getting back tomorrow as there will be love waiting for me. Can I just say that seniors are a gift to me?
