Good to be back

I always have to wonder after a few days hiatus if my seniors will be happy to see me or if they would just as soon still have me gone. It must be a deep-seated insecurity that I will no longer be needed.

I am happy to be back with Stella after the holiday. Her daughter was able to spend a few days with her, bonding and having a good time. That is so very important for families of the elderly! I am always happy for the seniors that have family that love them, but also somewhat sad because I truly miss them.

I am glad to be back in a position of service. I truly believe that this is what I was born to do. I love each and every aspect of my motto With Age Comes Respect and I plan to continue living it out with every task that I am able to perform. Knowing that I am wanted and needed is truly a gift from God above.

So as the days progress into years, I will learn to deal with the ‘away times’ as best I can. The least I can do is hope that the days are temporary because when they are permanent (as in Mira and Ed’s case), a hole is formed that does not close; missing the person who is lost forever to this world to another one that is better for them.

The more I realize what a gift I have been given, the more I can truly appreciate it for what it is….LOVE in a very pure form. It’s good to be back!
