Joy has spread clean through me! (Posted late on 06/19 from 06/17)

I worked quite hard this morning cooking, doing laundry and helping to clean and organize a bedroom for my morning clients. This afternoon, the joy spread clean through me as I was once again able to visit (albeit for only a couple more days). I love this woman as though she was my very own flesh and blood.

Even though she was tired today and the weather was bleak, my heart was light. She is just a joy to be around and I am soaking in as much of her radiance as I possibly can until she gets placed in the care of other folks in the county. When that time comes, I will pray.

I will pray for her to feel safe and secure. I will pray for me that I don’t judge the others caring for her. I will pray that the love and friendship built between us for the past three years does not dissipate like a dewdrop in the morning light.

I want this woman to remember me. I will always remember her and all of the great things that she has taught me. She is loved by me and by so many others. She is a great woman that I will have to fight to dare to let go each of her living, breathing days. I will always long to show her that With Age Comes Respect!

I will miss her and I hope she is aware that I will love her forever! I am just so grateful for three more days!
