Life’s Surprises

Almost a week ago my friend had a mini stroke and because his family has not come to take care of him or take him to one of their homes, I found myself in the unexpected position of being a care giver.  Being a full time care giver takes a lot of energy, and courage, but it is a labor of love.  My friend is very confused and often child-like.

I keep waiting for his sons to take over.  When is that going to be?

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Oh, Nancy, I’m so sorry to hear this about your friend. I know how difficult it is to give care especially with the confusion. God bless you, and him. I hope help arrives soon. xoxo
