We now have help two days a week-
Oh, how desperately, his aide did I seek!
A man so gentle & very patient too-
He helps in bathing & dressing – often hard to do!
It was hard for me to finally ask for assistance-
Seeing how our grandkids helped us – I needed persistence!
Persistence is finding a diamond in the rough-
For this new caregiver is kind but tough!
Now what is it we need to carry us through?
Something entertaining & helpful for Gary to do-
He needs to find something to occupy his day-
Something to help him along this challenging way.
This something is what I am looking for now-
Maybe a place that could show him how?
How to be active & how to actually live-
Rather than sit in his chair & not give.
I am the problem now after 12 years-
Now my identity is his through many tears-
The something I am searching for – yes I will find-
Our Lord is the only “Someone” who knows Garys mind-
And that “Someone” will continue to carry us through-
Our Lord is the one who fulfills the Help/Need in me & you!
