I run errands for senior citizens

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Like my life isnt full enough,I cant stand to see some old folk out shopping and hating it!Some are in pain,agoraphobic,unmobile or detest shopping.Two years ago,My 90 year old neighbor wanted some pizza and asked me to pick up one from Papa John's on my way back from the library.After that when I grocery shopped she gave me a list,cash/gas money and I would shop for her.She told her friends and before I knew it BAM!They dont have long lists and its good that I can help them out.Sara,an elegant little black lady wears dresses,pearls and heels everyday,asks me in for tea and company.Today we sat and talked about Whitney Houston.How beautiful a person she was and Sara had a daughter almost identical to her(she died in1992)I look around her home and see antique furniture,picture frames and quilts she sewed herself.When I leave,she kisses my forehead and tells me she loves me for all I do... emoticonas Im heading off to fill a perscription for Hattie Mae and buy her a rose and candy for Valentines day(I missed doing it yesterday)
