A break in topic

Today is a very sad day for two of my clients for today is the funeral of one of their best friends. I am so sorry for them. It must be sad for them to realize that yet one more link to their previous life is gone. There comes a time when you know that all of your links are gone.

Life is a fickle thing. It is very cyclical.

We come into it without friends and work our butts off establishing ourselves and building that friend base. It takes a lifetime to do this. Then, one after another, they begin to disappear. It is sad, it is lonely, it is horrendous to face.

The only thing I can do is to be a friend. A caregiver is the ultimate friend. I have made it my responsibility to show my clients that With Age Comes Respect and show them that I care.

I don’t know if I will see my clients today but if I do, I will give them each a big hug after praying for them all day long. That is all I can really do accept to be there and to listen. I will do all of that – and gladly.

I am glad to be a caregiver! I am happy to give!
