She Needs and Appreciates Me

I had just finished my walk and was getting ready to complete a blog post yesterday morning when I heard Kate’s voice over the video cam. I went to her. She said, “I am glad to see you.” I said, “I’m glad to see you.” Then I asked if there was anything I could do for her. She said, “Yes,” but she didn’t say what. She was pretty groggy. I asked if she would like to go to the bathroom. She said, “Not right now.” I said, “It sounds like you would like to rest some more.” She nodded. I started to say that I would be in the kitchen when she said, “Don’t leave me. I like you to be here.” I said, “How about my going to the kitchen and getting my things and coming back and sitting in the chair right here.” She that would be fine. When I returned, she thanked me for being with her and said, “You don’t have to say anything at all. You can if you want to.” She added, “You take good care of me. I don’t know how you do it?” It’s this kind of appreciation that gives me encouragement to do everything I can for her.
