Tonight I have to share feelings. To take you where I am as quickly as possible, I have been caring for ill family members as of late. My parents are both getting old and both are having health problems.....serious health problems. Kept my Dad from losing it tonight one more time as he let his blood sugar bottom out. My Mom cannot walk well with her fractured leg and spinal stenosis that are inoperable due to other health issues. Two things, one from each of them, broadsided me. My Dad asked how many times I was going to have to save his life? I told him I reckon til I die. My Mom said they were both old and no good for nothing(double negative accepted where we live). Told her they were both still teaching me things, and man is that a mouthful. I live and work in very close proximity to them, by my own choice years ago, knowing these times were coming and they are here. I am learning things about things most people don't even think about unless they have been there and done that. Biggest lesson I have learned is putting others' needs before personal desires......or at least working things where they will both work out after their needs are met. Having the clear mind and the thoughtful heart to give them both purpose even in their dire straits was a surprise to me tonight, as it most likely was to them. They may never know how many people will learn from this evening before all is said and done. I may never know where my near future may lead me as my business is being slowly left behind. I may never know the impact this will have on my life. What I do know and will share tonight before I get some rest is this: I am glad I was there, but would not have been there had they not been there. Life is an open book full of other wonderful people. Good night all.
