My meeting with the Pastor and his wife was just amazing. At first, I was nervous, because it added another person to the mix, but it was great. Maybe I will find the peace, love and security after all. It was just amazing to really get to speak of Izzy and my concerns and have some one in real life understand that I do hurt and tell me that everything is going to be okay.

Well, I have to get to work. I hope for the best for my clients. Whatever the best is. I went in there to take care of them and do a job, but what I was given was so much more than a job. Love!!! The love of old people!! The trust of old people!! Wow!!! It's amazing that I have been given many chances to be around old people. Even being trusted to see someone on the death bed. It takes a special kind of person to do what I do. Also, you got to have humor!

I finished reading the book you recommended (The Girls Who Went Away) last week, and it was amazing. Thanks so much for the recommendation. After reading it, I was struck by this post that you remind me of the women in the book (in many ways of course) but in this post, in the way that many of them ended up in jobs where they were advocates for the powerless in society because they knew what it felt like to be powerless. You're doing the same thing by taking care of the elderly, who need some of the same type of nurturing that children do.

I'm glad your counseling session went so well!
