Update on my friend

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Thanks goes out to all my friends for their prayers and advice. Things went great after she cried a little and she started to say she was sorry. Again I told her there were no shame in crying. She then said the Bible even said and Jesus wept. That was one thing that was bothering her, she couldn't read her Bible. I told her even if she couldn't see To read it,she knew allot of the passages and she started quoting some and said when she laid down at night she quoted them. God understands if you can't read them, he doesn't ask you to, just to try to live by them and to keep him in your life,and after all I or some else can read then to you. The other thing was she needed some help on some personal hygiene . I went and got her some dry shampoo, because she couldn't stand up for me to wash her hair, but this stuff worked great and I helped her to get in the bathroom and wash up and change clothes . She also wanted me to take her to the eye doctor in April ,to go back with her to see what they were saying and also be a witness on her will, she wanted at least one of her friends. I told her I would do these things for her. She said she would like to have the money to pay me. I told her I wouldn't be her friend if I couldn't do things for her without being paid. All in all It was the hygiene part she didn't want to ask the male caretaker to do. She asked me to come by again tomorrow . I feel good about it. I think I took some of the burden off her. She needed a female to talk to, she told me that. Off this and on something else I tried anytime fitness gym yesterday. I really enjoyed it. I think it was a better workout then curves. Going back tomorrow. Have a great day my friends.

    You' are a great friend, helping someone who needed it. Making someone feel comfortable and keeping their dignity and self respect is an important gift we can give someone.

    I'm glad you liked the fitness gym and are going back. Gifts for better health are important for you too.

    Have a great day!

    Wow, I'm going to pray for both of you. How wonderful that your friend has you in her life.

    Going blind is really awful. But as you said, someone can read to her. That's probably the best way to read the Bible, anyway, with a friend. :)
