Introductions were in order (Posted late on 05/17/2015 from 05/16/2015)

My newest – and eldest (at the age of 95; almost 96) – client and I got together this afternoon once again. While she ordinarily gets sleepy, today we spent practically four hours conversing, having lunch and just solving all the world’s problems.
She tells me that I am her friend and confidant. She tells me things that she is afraid to utter to her family for fear she will hurt their feelings. I am glad that she knows I believe that With Age Comes Respect and that she can trust me and confide in me anything that she deems necessary.
I, in turn, talk to her about many things; one of which is my two boys. I tell her all about their lives, their personalities, etc. So, she stated one time that she would like to meet them. Today she got that opportunity!
The boys and I had made a shopping date, so they met me at her house and stopped in to say hello. It was just wonderful.
When my client found out that they were coming by, she primped and beautified which I think is so special. Then, with all her years of wisdom, repeated back so many of the things that she learned about them from me. It was beautiful!
I just hope and pray that if I do live a life to the ripe old age of mid-90’s or so, that I do have my mind. Of course there will be physical drawbacks, but at least I will still be able to think like this lovely lady does!
