The A2Z challenge is finished. I am so proud. It is a Fresh Start for me.
I'm going to tell you about my day.
My day started with breakfast with BabyGirl at Ihop. We spent time catching up and munching. I really enjoy our time together. I realize not all children spend time with their parents. I know I am blessed. I really need to start to do the same with my Mom.
Then I went buy my Hospice patient some ice cream and went visit. She was sleeping. I gently called her name and she opened her eyes briefly but went right back to sleep. I stayed for about 20 minutes then left her a note.
After I had to go to the dreadful Wallyworld for a few things. As I was going through the door I noticed an elderly black man on one of the Walmart scooters. I saw him struggle. He was putting his collapsible rolling walker in the basket.
I know how irritating it can be when good intentional strangers try to help so I stayed back and watched. He started going again so I figured he was okay. I passed him and said hello. I wasn't but a few feet ahead when I heard a bang. I turned around. His walker had fallen down. We caught each other eyes. He quietly asked if I could help. I went maneuver the walker laying it down.
He said, "Oh thank you so much!" I assured him it was no problem. I think we connected because we both have a disability. He seemed to be a proud man and I know it was hard to ask. It was a short exchange but it made my heart smile that I could help someone rather than someone helping me. I saw him rolling around when I left.
I went to the library to pick up my books on hold. I had one night without a book to read, it was terrible! I'm all set up now!
Oh, did I say I had my top on my car down letting the sun shine and wind blow in my hair. Oh yea!!! Now that's some good living and a delightful day!
Until next time….
