Reached out a hand
shadow covers life’s light
she held mine
Kindness seems like a great word for the A to Z challenge as we start a new week
“She was the kindest and loving neighbor I’ve ever had.”
“She was kind and thoughtful to everyone in her life”
“She never said an unkind word to her family”
8am – I must change her position in bed and give her meds.
It’s still early for her body.
9am – I crack the blinds. The sun peaks in.
Her toes that have snuck out from under the covers are waving
10am she says good morning by squeezing my hand. That squeeze means so much.
Several weeks – caregivers and family have poured kindness into her care
Last week her husband face-timed me
“Hello, How are you?” Her face was beaming and I wanted to hug her.
“You look great. Its wonderful to see you up and about.”
“Thank you for everything you did”
I should be thanking her because even in the darkest days her kindness came through
How has someone’s kindness made you day, week, month???
During these days of Covid some contact is nice.
Thank you each one of you. Even distant friendships mean sooo much.
