Sometimes we get busy and forget to stop and look around. When we take a moment to pause its easy to see there are angels everywhere. Today was Mom's Adult Day-Care program. The women who work and volunteer to run this program are angels. Not only to our family, but to the other participants as well.
It can't be easy. There are a dozen clients, each at various stages of the illness. I know just from what I've seen at drop offs and pick ups, it can get a little hectic for everyone. But these Angels never show a single sign of frustration. Always upbeat, smiling and cheerful. It always inspires me to know that I can entrust Moms care to them for a day.
Today at the pick-up, things seemed a little more chaotic than usual. But even in all that, they took the time to fill me in on the day, what she ate, and even a funny story. I'm not sure if this makes sense, but it kind of put my day back in perspective. It makes you appreciate the simple little things we often overlook.
On another note, I've been thinking of trying to spruce up the blog. I have no ideas....yet. But I just think I've let things get a little stale. And when I logged in tonight I noticed I lost a follower :(. I know it's silly. I remember reading someone else's post awhile ago about losing followers. She said she likes to imagine they died so it doesn't feel so much like they left her on purpose. I don't know why but that made me giggle.
Just in case you were wondering, I really appreciate each and everyone who comments or even just reads my babble. I've encountered quite a few Angels through blogland. Thank You :)
