A sad yet expected day (Posted late on 06/13 from 06/11)

Earlier this week, I was told that one of my clients would be going into extended care for the rest of her normal life. I knew that this day was coming, but we have yet to nail down a firm date. Today we got a better understanding of just when that may be when a county worker came in to assess my client.
I will be very sad next week when I have to say goodbye. I love this woman with all my heart! I cannot even express just how much she has taught me over the past few years.
When I started visiting, I was not certain if I could do the laid back lifestyle that 89-year-olds are accustomed to living, but I soon adapted and have loved being with her ever since. She is the kindest, most loving individual I think that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting!
She never takes life for granted and she notices even the smallest things that most people overlook; that I overlooked until she taught me to notice. Her smile is radiant and I have told her on more than one occasion that she needs to teach classes that would show people how to smile and be grateful. She just chuckles and responds, “Oh, go on!”
This is one woman that I have had no problem showing that With Age Comes Respect because I have been respected and loved more from her than practically anyone!
