Yesterday Audrey and I worked in her garden, clearing paths so that the beautiful flowers had space to grow. The work may seem hard, but the time we spend creates such a bond that is forged for a lifetime. We work the weeds out and prune the flowers, plants and bushes so that they will continue to prosper now and in the future.

This garden of love continues within her household. Her daughter always makes certain that something is growing or that her mother has bright, fresh flowers. This simple act of love is evident everywhere I turn in Audrey’s condo.

It is wonderful to step into a wonderland of simplicity and love. Everywhere I look in her small domain, there are photos or artwork provided by Audrey’s family. It is evident just how much they love this wonderful woman and also evident why. I feel loved for the simple reason that I spend time with this most grateful woman. That is what makes my position of caregiver just that much more rewarding!

I love people and I especially love those in my care. I never want to forget that With Age Comes Respect. That is why I will work in the gardens of love and help to cultivate more of that essence. Not only will the garden flourish, but so will my seniors and I!
