Ok, I dont mean this to be sad but I am and am so, so rarely that I thought I would post about it. I love volunteering and taking my greyhound to the childrens hospital and the senior center because she loves to be petted, I love making her happy and people love petting her! Good all around. It may be because its the holidays but this last few visits to the senior center I have been filled with the most profound sadness. I have no children to care for me when I am old. I have neices and nephews who probably will more than a child but still. This wonderful man had been by his mothers side for every visit. I stopped by the room on Monday and it was empty. The bed made, all this womans history taken from the walls. I know she is in a better place. But I wondered what it will be like when thats me. Next post will be my old self I promise.
