Caregiver, Caretaker

I am vigilant,
Watching over my mother,
Who is now almost
Helpless to do things alone,
I try to fulfill her needs.

I realize there
Are those who would easily
Trample over her
Rights in their hurry to make
All the money possible.

I am her watchdog,
Glad to be of assistance
In these waning years
When she needs my gentle care
To ease her through painful days.

I’m the vigilant
Daughter, doing my best to
Give my Mom comfort,
Trying to make her days as
Pleasant as is probable.

I hope when my time
Of need arrives that someone
Will be at my side
To lend me any help that
I may need to survive, thrive.

I am grateful:

1.   I was not in intense pain when I woke up.
2.   The milk I drank with my Oreo cookies was cold and fresh.
3.   The session with the physical therapist went well.
4.   I found a new food that Penny ate well this evening.
5.   Sam’s Club had some baby clothes on sale and we got some for our Cabbage Patch Kids.


My Friday turned out quite well. I hope your day was pleasant. You have taken time to visit here and I encourage you to invest a few moments in creative endeavors. I know you have the most amazing abilities if you will only use them. There is so much you can share with the world if you are willing. Make an effort and see what you can accomplish.

    Please come to Tennessee with me when you are ready for that change, if you find yourself looking for peace and beauty. I will be here for you if you find yourself short of family/friends. Don’t doubt me, I’m here.
