Contemplating on my Day at the Home!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

After i got home from my day at the home to see my uncle who is in the Dementia unit and the others ive been visiting for a long time! I have lost many old friends and the ones i seen today i could just see in their eyes that they probably wont be of this world more than a few months, something i could just see and feel today! it was a sad feeling but i also know they are ready many have lived a Beautiful life and they are tired as my Brother was who died a year ago! I took care of him 8 yrs full time i guess my experience being with the old friends has made me stronger cause ive seen over 50 plus thats crossed over. I thought of the Quote by Chief Seattle that says THERE IS NO DEATH only A CHANGE OF WORLDS! I know this is true so its easier to let them go! Ive spent 5 years volunteering there , my mom was there awhile until she said get me outta here and i did my aunt was there 3 yrs and uncle there now and have learned a lot about life and death A life changing experience for sure! One of the old friends said see how we are here this is what you have to look forward to! An eye opener and more of a reason to take extra good care of my self! That one comment will keep me motivated for ever Enjoy your life every minute of it ! I hope i didnt depress any one and thank you for allowing me write on my thoughts! It helps me with moving on to take care of myself and working on my Healthy GOALS,BONNIE Blessings to all of you ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Your thoughts brought to mind ,My older friend who went on to another adventure several years ago.Her daughter and I spent the last 6 weeks of her life at her bedside.After her death my friend couldn't deal with picking up her ashes etc...I didn't want to but did it anyway. I picked up the urn and then had to have Mickey Ds comfort food.I told my older friend who hated fast food what I was doing and I could just see her rolling her eyes at me and sassing me about the bad food choices I was making .(She hated fast food).My friend wasn't gone,she was with me as usual as she still is emoticon
