I love you........

I hear those words several times a night. And not from my lover or my s/o. From the people I take care of.
Everyone of them I put to bed at night, I tuck them in and cover them up, and give them a kiss on the forhead or the cheek, and tell them sweet dreams. And I think about how everyone complains about being alone. But what if you were truely alone? And the one person who shows you any care or compassion is a person you just met months ago and you only see for a few hours daily, and you don't even really know their name, basically a stranger to you.
Just thinking that the people I tuck into bed every night were once out in the world like all of us, and now where are they?
It is kinda frightening to think, we could all end up in a little room, with the few belongings that will fit in this room,dim reminders of what was once our lives. A few pictures,memories of what once was "US". The pictures of the s/o that is now gone and of the kids who never visit.
And all you will have left is this stranger who tucks you in, kisses your head and tells you sweet dreams.
And it is that same stranger that will be the one who will be with you when the end comes.

I know I'm way too stubborn now, no way I'll end up in a tiny room..
The impact though that you do, seems maybe simple for you, is it just a job? To them it must mean the world.

A very inspired blog. You are right, sometimes we get so busy in our pity party that we forget the ones who give their love to us with defenses down and with no expectations.
As for the future, we can not know what it holds. My mother passed away a year ago. My sibs and I where sitting and dividing up the pictures that she had in her house. Hundreds of them. As I was looking at them I was thinking, “Theses people, these places meant something to her”. To me, they were strangers and places that I had never been. Many of these pictures will wind up in a closed box in someone’s closet, never again to see the light of day. One woman’s life in pictures, never to inspire memory again.
Live each day as if it were your last. One day you will be right.

Very touching, It really is amazing how a simple smile can touch someone as you have. Well done, good and faithful servant. It takes alot out of someone giving as you do. I am glad you can vent here. My door is always open here in Blogville and the coffee pot is on if ever you need to chat. Thanks for caring for our elders.

I'm definitely feeling you on this girlfriend...HOTNBOTHERED041.......and how about the people that keep their little suitcases packes becasue they just KNOW a family member is going to come for them "Today"?
Sad, yes....realistic...no.....I do what I can.....I take time for this special kind of people....I spend just a few minutes longer with my people....If I didn't do that....they wouldn't ever see anyone other than the room mate...If they have a room mate....and yes...some of my people don't have that....the family brings them in, drops them off...kisses them and says something along the lines of "We'll see you every week Mom,dad, sister, brother, uncle....[you get it]...and they same people are not seen again until that family member they dropped off...dies.....I just don't understand how they can drop off a family member and just wait around for them to die....so they can then get whatever little bit of money, belongings that family member had......You know one other sad thing........when the money starts to get low for the person that put that family member there in the first place.......they then change the CODE in their charts to DNR....How fucking mean,sad, lowdown is that?
Sorry, for venting.....but I have nothing good to say about the people that come into my work and do a family member like that....
