The chair was purchased while the strong man mentioned in previous blog post below spent a week in the hospital this past summer. This care-giver thinks about that each time she looks up from her morning cup of tea, while he is still asleep in the next room.
She recalls calling him about it from the store and him stating he could not see spending the money on himself. I assured him he deserved such a luxury and purchased it, assembled it and had it waiting for his return. I know your sitting there laughing at the fact I said a chair was a luxury. Well men Strong as Glass really focus on working and paying bills…not so much on what will help him be comfortable.
This midlife care-giver admits looking at this chair in the future will cause two very different feelings. First one when the lungs of this Man as Strong as Glass stops fighting to live, and the chair sits there empty it will leave emptiness in her mind and soul. Yet she will also be able to look at that chair as a symbol of no regrets of being a life time nurturer and care-giver.
God Bless All the Care-givers out there, support one another.
Imagine cold wintry night, snow is falling outside, the wind is brisk and whistling. Coyotes are howling in the distance. While inside a woman settles down for the night. A comfy chair in front of a roaring fire. As she stares into the roaring fire it comes to her mind, She is about to turn an age people refer to as being over a half-century old. That means she has lived half of her life, wondering what the other half has in store.
As she sits and stares into that fire with thoughts of becoming a half-century old. He is across the room admiring how she still looks amazing. She has taken care of herself. He does not see the thoughts clouding her mind. In her mind, she sees herself as an old woman. Old women turn a half-century old is the thought clouding her mind. Old women do not get stared at from across the room as she catches his view from the side of her eyes. Is he seeing her thoughts and afraid to approach a woman a half-century old or is he waiting patiently for her to approach as she has done in the past? The silence lingers in the room warmth by the fire as they retire for the evening.
