As we go on this journey, I am doing more & more-
There is no way he is to settle this score.
I started doing small things, that bugged me a bit-
Leading to absolute dependency – I need a “to do” kit!
Caregiving was not a natural for me-
I am a self centered, only child that wanted to be free!
Free from obligations, responsibility & doing my share-
Just the thought of all that work was more than I could bare!
(So I thought)
Our Lord has strengthened & enriched my life more that I can tell-
And I do feel better about myself, even when I yell!
Patience & compassion has replaced my apathy demeanor-
Resilience is my middle name – I needn’t be meaner!
Yes, I resented every new task that came my way-
I often wondered – why do I stay?
But stay I have, no, I’m not giving up-
I just keep drinking from this demanding cup.
There is now a calm that spreads through any given day-
The only way through this journey is to daily pray.
