These words knocked me down this afternoon. They came from our friend LD.
You all make me feel as if there is still a place for me on this earth. Too often, seniors get to feeling that there is nothing more for them. Thank you for the gift of your friendship.
They were part of her Thank you note for the help we gave her on Saturday. Two hours of work and we took her to lunch. We did so little. But it was so appreciated. And the pride I feel about that effort, made by my little family, has left me sitting here at my desk in tears. And, there's a physical tug between my eyes and my heart.
I am at risk of a bruise from patting myself on the back. And, when I get home, there's going to be a group hug.
I just can't get over how little it takes to make a difference.
Emotions on overdrive.
