Just a moment of your time



Today I had the pleasure of visiting I saw this lovely lady, Olga. She doesn't speak very much, and our conversations are never deep. But it doesn't matter. What matters is that I'm there, holding her hand listening. She isn't alone. So many elderly are alone and living in convalescent homes.

They may have latest technology; tvs, all the latest gadgets, much like Olga's brand new establishment. But you know what? None of it means anything to them. All they want is company. All they want it for someone to care and to show them they matter.

People often say what I do is kind and so great. It really isn't. I do nothing special at all. I just turn up, and by doing so it shows I care. It shows she means something to me.
 
And she does. I took this photo today because sometimes I don't know what to do. I feed her biscuits, attempt conversation and when really stuck, pull out my phone and take photos. Today I did all three. It doesn't take much to show someone you care. It only asks that you be there.
